Paralume / Come Applicare La Passamaneria

Applicare la passamaneria sui bordi e le giunzioni del paralume.  I passamani rappresentano un passaggio importante e occorre grande cura nella scelta: abbelliscono, rifiniscono, celano le piccole imperfezioni della lavorazione manuale, donano un tocco speciale al paralume.  Ci sono diversi metodi per applicare i passamani: la colla vinilica o specifica, la colla a caldo oppure il nastro biadesivo o di cotone.

Con la colla, scelgo la passamanieria più adatta: bordino o cordino, fiocchi o nastro, pizzo o merletto, perline o nappine, bottoni o pompom.  Spalmo una piccola dose di colla vinilica, o vinilacrilica o specifica per il tessuto, con un pennello piatto lungo il bordo del paralume; applico la passamaneria; la faccio aderire accuratamente e la fisso con le mollettine di plastica.  Procedo così, man mano che la colla si asciuga, fino alla fine.  Lavoro allo stesso modo per coprire o abbellire le eventuali giunzioni verticali.  Pazienza e precisione: è importante non far colare la colla sulla stoffa del paralume, infatti i residui sono difficili da rimuovere!

Con la colla a caldo.  Per un fissaggio rapido e resistente la colla a caldo è senz’altro la più indicata.  Da applicare con la sua specifica pistola, un utensile pratico e di facile reperibilità nei centri bricolage.  La colla asciuga in pochi istanti.  Residui e filamenti si tolgono abbastanza agevolmente quando sono induriti; tuttavia essi possono lasciare aloni sui tessuti più delicati (per esempio, raso, seta e tulle).

Trimmings 11Passamaneria 1

Con il nastro biadesivo o quello adesivo in cotone, faccio aderire un lato del nastro biadesivo al bordo del paralume; all’altro lato, applico la passamaneria.  Premo delicatamente per eliminare tutte le grinze.  Altrimenti, piego il nastro adesivo in cotone a metà, tolgo la carta protettiva, fisso la prima metà sul bordo del paralume; quindi ripiego l’altra metà verso l’interno.  Al nastro in cotone posso applicare la passamaneria sia con la colla sia con punti di cucito o ricamo.  Il vantaggio più importante è che questo metodo è semplice e facile, il nastro si può parzialmente rimuovere per riposizionarlo, l’adesivo non lascia residui indelebili.

Lampshade & Passementerie

(pls enter on the italian translation)

The trim or trimming (from the French passement, i.e. the action to pass, to put in order, to apply an ornament; the early French word for lace; from the Middle English “trimmen” and from the Old English “trymian”, i.e. to strengthen, to arrange, to firm) is a decorative accessory originally, and for thousands of years, made and applied by hand, the act of embellishing and garnishing something with by fastening, sewing or attaching elaborate objects, mainly using needle-and-thread-stitches, such as ribbons, lace, fabrics, buttons, bows, embroidery, ruffles, gimp threads, frills, tassels, fringes, gallons, pom-pom, braids, etc.  Its origin is lost in the mists of time:  it is impossible to define the beginnings of this art in a precise fashion.

Passamaneria 2Primitive human beings in the Paleolithic Era, after the art of making elaborate tattoos to express artistic and religious feelings and to show the first signs of social and tribal distinction, decorated themselves with passementerie.  The most diverse decorations were created according to incoming needs and rituals: animal skins cut into strips, bones, shells, fruits, plant fibres, stones, seeds, pearls and bells added to articles of dress, bracelets, amulets and, of course, to weapons.

Passamaneria 1The weaving of cloth from natural fibres had its first significant evidence, especially in the East and Middle East, around 5000-4000 B.C.  The trimming – and sewing which went together with this development – arrived in Europe with the Islāmic conquest.  The Silk Road brought Chinese embroidery techniques to Western Asia and Europe.  The industrial production of semi-finished trims began in England in 1748 and spread quickly in France and Germany.

Passamaneria 3In 1790 Thomas Saint patented the first sewing machine.  By the early 1840s, other machines began to appear.  The Industrial Revolution in the 19th century shifted the textiles production from the household to the mills; as well the introduction to creative woven trims emphasized the manufacture of passementerie to enhance the beauty of garments and home decor.

Passamaneria 4The passementier is someone who makes and sells trimmings.  The passementerie can be applied with sewing stitches or embroidery on a soft material, such as fabric, leather and felt; with specific glue or adhesives on hard and stiff material and divided into a) for clothing b ) for home decor.  The purposes for which it is used are mainly two: a) the structural and finishing one, to cover seams, to fix hems and edges and to prevent fabric fraying; b) the aesthetic and decorative one, to garnish and embellish.

A Birthday Gift & Japan !

a birthday gift & japan 3 a birthday gift & japan 6

 Beautiful japanese 100% cotton fabric and Kokeshi soft-paper dolls and small tree.  What an idea for a unique birthday gift: to decorate a 30×40 cm. canvas with the decoupage technique.  First of all I need a soft pencil to design the template on the canvas front side, the scissors to cut out my fabric symmetrically and vinyl glue (or special fabric-glue).  Also a flat brush to spread an adequate glue measure on to paste the ten fabric pieces, my fingers to hold and press the fabric down while it dries.  Then I use a satin water-based varnish gel to create a protective finishing.  I apply a thin uniform coat with a specific smooth flat brush and let dry for at least six hours.  I repeat twice, or three times.  Finally, I paste the japanese Kokeshi soft-paper dolls and small tree to the copper lamina and cut them out carefully.  I glue them with hot-melt adhesive by a hot-glue gun directly to my fabric.  To embellish I choose a white wooden frame.
