We made a classic 4 pleat, black grosgrain and handwoven black Thai silk cummerbund today.
The cummerbund is for the upcoming wedding of a caligraphy artist; who requested a ribbon style closure in the back and a hidden pocket.
We have designed a solid brass clasp and slider which we are in the process of having a mold made for now. Probably in about three months the clasps and sliders will be cast and we will start making a clasp and slider style cummerbund in addition to today's ribbon closure style.
Dark Navy Piccola nad Prometeo Grenadine silks have arrived. The dark navy is a shade lighter than our old Midnight Blue Piccola and Prometeo grenadines and is replacing the midnight blue.
New formal/wedding silks are available.
More Grossa and Fina grenadine silks have arrived - then again perhaps in October...
