Hand-rolled hems

Hand-rolling is an essential hand sewing craft. French- or Italian-rolled?

The technique is the same: the seamstress rolls the edge of the piece of fabric in their fingers until they have a sufficiently tight and firm roll that is also sufficiently supple and puffed. They then sew it by hand with practically invisible stitches.

French or Italian?

The hem is rolled inwards for the French-style. For the Italian-style it is rolled outwards.

Arouse the senses

An eye-catching hand-rolled hem caresses the hand and neck, enhancing the pattern and colors with a delicately fashioned frame.

Men and women wearing a hand-rolled scarf see and feel the difference, with their eyes, with the touch of a hand, and on their neck.
