Modra venetian blinds :: all about grosgrain tape

July 6th, 2010 in All About Blinds

There was some debate in the office last week about our great new Modra venetian blind. We have taken the world of venetian blinds to a whole new stratosphere with the addition of a grosgrain tape.

The debate was “who actually knows what grosgrain is?”. Well very soon we ALL knew what it was, and once you know what it is you spot it just about everywhere. Here’s a quick sample of gorgeous things featuring grosgrain tape. We are in excellent company, note the vintage Yves Saint Laurent cocktail dress and Kate Spade handbag.

PS – If you’re still unsure about what grosgrain is, it’s a type of fabric characterised by its ribbed appearance. In grosgrain the weft is heavier than the warp, creating prominent transverse ribs. It is called a “corded” fabric since the weft resembles a fine cord. Thanks very much to wiki!

PPS – Make sure you take a look at the wonderfully stylish Modra collection in all its stunning colours.
