Tribal chain fringe adds beautiful detailing to tribal and fusion costuming belts, bras and accessories. Links are made of wire and can easily be snipped with wire cutters to customize your length. Vintage chain fringe is taken from old articles of clothing, home decor items or animal trappings. Our newer chain fringe pieces are made by Afghani craftsmen living in Pakistan.
Tips for using DIY chain fringe: Add chain fringe by sewing through the top chain. Because chain fringe is heavy, there is more stress on the stitches. Take a stitch every two links or so and knot frequently to keep chain secure if the thread breaks. Chain fringe can be snipped to any length with wire cutters.
