Originally french binding was used on materials, but later adapted for mounts in picture framing.
French binding is a versatile bias binding technique that is used to enclose the raw edges of light weight and sheer fabrics.
The finish is quite beautiful around necklines and armholes when neatly and meticulously done in either matching or contrast colours or fabrics.
