I love soutache. Soutache is a narrow flat braid sewn in any shape to the surface of a garment. From men's mariachi trousers to details on 1910s-1950s clothing, this incredible technique, no matter how intricate or simple, adds the perfect amount of depth and texture to any garment. This technique is a good example that shows the importants of(normally overlooked) surface decoration is in the world of design.

It seems the most popular periods for felt cut outs would be the 1920s 1930s 1940s and 1950s
