What is a Welt Cord?
The edging seams of a cushion emphasize its silhouette and add strength to its frame. This edging, which is a cord, is made in varying degrees of thicknesses. This will depend upon its type: Tinsel, fabric, string, or elastic, string, thing or twisted material. This cording work also serves to give the cushion a third-dimensional quality. This process is known as cording.
The end product is called a welt cord. A welt, or pipe, refers to a cord is inserted in between two separate pieces. This is something you typically see on armrests and seat cushions. On sofas, chairs, and ottoman covers, you will often see braided welt cord.
