Hello, new member here.I supply trimmings to (mainly) the menswear trade so I hope I may be of service www.tailorstrimmings.co.uk
My locality is quite traditional, insofar as the tailors have been at the job for years and keep buying the same everyday stuff! I can of course supply other items not shown so I welcome enquiries. I also do quite a few buttons which I do not sell online.Thanks for reading!

Welcome. Looking forward to your contributions to the forum. There are always lots of questions about linings, paddings, horsehair etc etc. Good to have an expert on board.
Sure, I believe your work rocks, but... have you considered, how are you going to sell that stuff?

I think "expert" might be pushing it a bit!

It is what is known otherwise as "Wundaweb", ie thin adhesive activated by heat for turning up hems etc.
