Fall Introductions: Épinglé Collection

Epingle Collection of Velvet Trimmings

Contemporary and classic all at once, the new Épinglé collection is a first in the trimming industry, a feat for our Director of Design, Marisa Gutmacher and a testament to her vision and dedication.

The development process would involve extensive quality and color trials and the exploration of multiple mills all in an effort to produce a superior épinglé—one with a finer denier and denser pile.

Épinglé is unique in that it combines both the loop and the cut pile in the same fabric to render a pattern, a technique that originated in medieval Italy. In the case of this collection, its construction enhances each design—Verdon being a perfect example. In the image seen below, notice how Marisa has treated the color distribution with different striéd yarns, and the loop bordering the cut velvet enhances the simplicity of the satin ground.

The five border designs are complemented by a Swiss Velvet Piping available in 18 colors. As you can see on the pillow pictured at the top of this post that has been finished with our Rhodes Épinglé Velvet Border in Raspberry, pairing the velvet cord with tape and the Épinglé border can give added dimension and definition to your designs.
