Outlining A Damask Fabric
The use of an outline to provide emphasis to a fabric can be a dynamic element in design. This is especially true with textiles. The above outline was accomplished using a Cornely machine to hand-guide the multi thread cord around the intricacy of the damask pattern. I have also used this process to enhance many other fabrics such as Fortuny. The result speaks for itself - the added touch of elegance. Below is a photo of the completed chair back. For a very close up view of the cording, click on the top picture.
