An example of trim or embellishment that is used on draperies, upholstery and other soft home decorating goods.

NOTE:

The edging or border may be produced by the constituent threads or by threads added to a fabric after weaving or knitting.

b) A trimming (narrow fabric) that has, on one or both edges, cut or looped weft threads that form a decorative edge, and that are sometimes bunched or knotted together to increase the decorative effect.

2. The part of the fringe comprising both warp and weft is known as the heading.

3. The part of the fringe containing only weft is known as the skirt.
