Hi all,

I came across this item: http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/180479

And I’d like to know how it was made… It almost looks woven on the underside.

Appreciate the help!

      I’d probably go about it by making the base layer up out of something loose woven or a mesh and knotting the tassels in like rug-hooking. It’ll take for ever, mind!

    What sort of loose woven do you suggest? Would knitting work?

    Is there a name for this technique? And what sort of yarn was used? Detais say Black acetate-blend, but not sure what else to look for.

    Do you know anyone with a flat bed knitting machine? Fringe can be made very quickly on a knitting machine and it is somewhat “knitted” together at one end. The “fringes” can either be looped or cut at the bottom. http://www.upcraft.it/archives/581

      Actually I have several knitting machines. Great tip. Will try it out.

    It reminded me of free form crochet where yarns are knotted to a flexible mesh fabric. What ever you use make sure the ends will not ravel.
