Gilt broad plate is a 2mm wide flat metal ribbon used in traditional goldwork embroidery. 


To use, make a small fold under on the plate and catch this down with the sewing thread. Then bend it back and forth over an area ensuring the fabric underneath is covered, working a stitch in each bend to hold it in place. This item comes coiled up in an acid free bag, on a reel of acid free tissue paper or a small cop.


Handmade in the UK.
