Haberdashery – The Finishing Touches

It’s not just fabric that we specialise in here at Calico Laine; Haberdashery is also our thing. We know that when it comes to your craft projects, it’s all in the detail. The finishing touches are so important. From fringing to ribbons, buttons to beads, we’ve got everything you could need both online and in store.

Haberdashery Trims

Add a touch of class and luxury to crafts with some of our lovely trims. Guipure lace is the perfect addition to many projects. Due to its elegant appearance it is often used for bridal wear, but this delicate lace can also be used to embellish tops, skirts and even hats. It can turn the simplest of garments into something beautiful. Similarly, our selection of diamante trims can be used in a variety of ways to jazz up your clothing and accessories. For example, you could use them as an alternative to the simple spaghetti strap or as a sophisticated belt detail on an evening dress. This is the perfect way to make you clothing look expensive and luxurious without costing you a fortune.

Pom pom trims have also proved to be a very popular product in our haberdashery section. Not only are they ideal for dressmaking, but they can be used for cushions and have been widely used in our Lampshade Upcycling Courses. We stock a wide range of colours and sizes that you can purchase by the metre or by the roll. They are a stylish yet fun way to add that finishing touch to your craft projects.


Ribbons are an essential haberdashery item. There are many different types, such as satin, chiffon, grosgrain, wire edged, novelty, and we have them all! Our satin range from Berisfords is our most popular, as they are of the highest quality for a great price. Often used in dressmaking, satin ribbon is great for trims and waistbands. Yet its uses are not limited. Our ribbons are popular for card making, cake decorating, hair accessories and much more.

But plain ribbons are not everyone’s first choice. For those wanting something a little bit different we have a brilliant range of patterned ribbons. Spots, stripes, stars, flowers, unicorns. We’ve got them all. If you are wanting to add an extra special, personal touch to your craft projects, you should definitely take a look at our Craft Ribbons. Whether it has been ‘crafted with love’, ‘made by Grandma’ or ’home grown’, we have got a ribbon suitable for you.

With a vast range of colours and designs which come in a variety of widths, you will be spoilt for choice in our ribbon department.

Whether you are starting from scratch or simply wanting to up cycle, update or modernise an item look no further. If you head over to our Haberdashery section on our website, you will find many more products to excite and inspire you when it comes to adding the finishing touch. Go big and bold with marabou feathers, or keep it pretty and understated with an anglaise trim. Don’t forget, it’s all in the detail.
