Soutache embroidery is a technique which dates back to the fourteenth century in France. It was initially used for making decorative elements sewn on clothing and elaborate military uniforms. The name comes from the French word 'soutache' which is a silky braid used to decorate cut fabric. Textile artists have used soutache embroidery to create luxurious one-of-a-kind jewelry. The soutache braids are meticulously stitched together with fine needle and threads while combining a variety of cabochons and beads, resulting in an amazing combination of color and style of royal character. Since soutache embroidered jewelry is a very precise, laborious and demanding technique, the end result is a unique work of art.
