What is Welt Cord?
It is simply a cord with a decorative cover. It is used to add style or durability on the seams of most any type of fabric. It comes in different sizes, colors, types, and strength. Typically, it is covered in fabric, but can also be covered in leather or plant fiber. It is composed of two parts. The inner core and the cover, which are called the filler cord and cord cover.
Choosing the Proper Type of Welt Cord for Your Project
Its two main uses are to alter the look or alter the strength of an item. For something like a piece of clothing or a blanket, you would use thin, soft fabric to hug the body and flow gently. Whereas, for a couch or sofa, you would want thick, durable cord cover to increase its strength and longevity.
