Cord -- long thin string or rope made from several twisted strands.
The cords are described from left to right:
1. Fine strand of cotton perle corded with black machine thread.
2. Strip of brown-black velvet corded with silver-black metallic thread. The fabric was threaded through the cording foot pile side down so that the pile showed.
3. Strips of black sari waste and black and white gingham corded with silver-black metallic thread.
4. Three single strands of thin grey wool corded with silver-black metallic thread and plaited.
5. A twist of three cords -- white knitting tape corded with black and two cords of Narvik wool corded with silver-black metallic thread.
6. Tube of grey-black dupion threaded with several strands of thin wool and gathered.
Again fro left to right:
1. Strip of black and white spotted fabric, rough edges turned in and knotted.
2. Strip of organza which has been dyed using a Shibori technique and knotted. The result is very light and insubstatial.
3. Sari waste and knitting tape corded separately and then together with silver-black metallic thread and knotted at close intervals -- a very attractive cord with weight.
4. Sari waste corded yet again with silver-black metallic thread, then again to attach short strips of the sari waste.
5. Corded brown-black velvet with the addition of short lengths of raffia dyed with black ink and fine silver wire spirals. This time the fabric was threaded through the cording foot pile side uppermost so that the pile did not show.
