Double Flange - Bellino

A 2 tiered decorative band of fabric that extends beyond the dimensions of a duvet or sham, typically added along three sides of a duvet cover and on all four sides of a pillow sham. This creates an elegant stitched trim, that is anywhere from ½” up to 1 ½” in width.

A feminine decorative band of fabric drawn up at one edge in gathers or plaits, which extends beyond the dimensions of a duvet or sham, typically added along three sides of a duvet cover and on all four sides of a pillow sham.

Contrast Piping

Contrast piping - Antoinette Viola

A type of trim, consisting of a strip of folded fabric inserted into a seam to define the edges of a duvet cover or sham. Usually the fabric strip is cut on the bias. In contrast piping the fabric strip is cut from a different fabric than the body of the duvet cover or sham, usually in a complimentary colour. Often, cording is inserted into the piped fabric to add structure to the edges of the duvet or pillow. This creates a modern, clean edge, available in ¼” or ⅛”.

Self-Piping

Self Piping - Pyrus Grey

A type of trim, consisting of a strip of folded fabric inserted into a seam to define the edges of a duvet cover or sham. Usually the fabric strip is cut on the bias. In self-piping the fabric strip is cut from the same fabric as the body of the duvet cover or sham. Often, cording is inserted into the piped fabric to add structure to the edges of the duvet or pillow. This creates a modern, clean edge, available in ¼” or ⅛”.
