Welt Cord and Its Uses
A cord with a fabric cover is called a welt cord. These are used for a wide variety of upholstery projects such as pillows, sofas, and chairs. Their main function is to hide seams in fabric especially around corners and between materials that vary in thickness or density. DAPA Products can assist you in choosing the right welt cord for your project.
Braided welt cord is especially nice when used on furniture of all types. It gives the upholstery a wow factor. Braided welt cord can lend strength to the seams of your projects as well as enhancing the 3D visuals of pillows and blankets.
1. Pillow with cording
Two great ways to achieve eye catching effects are self-cording, where you use the same fabric as the pillow, or contrast cording, using different colors or patterns to make them really stand out. Braided welt cord is a great contrast cording.
