Casket Edge Woven Tape - Real Metals per Meter

$ 27.00

Two real metal woven tapes have been made in France for our caskets; a sterling silver tape replicating the original edgings for caskets as well as a gilt version. The sterling silver metal threads made for these tapes were made by wrapping cream silk at a 50% wrap coverage, like the originals. The silk was used to give a better hand to allow the tape to go over corners. The tape will tarnish over time and achieve a similar look to the originals, the gilt version will also darken with age. 

The width is 6.5 mm to match the originals.

A double casket requires approximately 14 meters

A flat top with doors casket needs approximately 9 meters.

A flat top casket needs approximately 7 meters

A short flat top casket needs approximately 7 meters

The tapes are sold by the meter and are cut to order in as long of continuous pieces as possible.
