Plisse', Please 😀

Listed a vintage plisse' cotton guitar strap that is just super cool. Plisse' is a fabric treatment to create creases or puckers, making the material more unique and interesting The Egyptians first did this using raw eggs and a special wooden dowel with a narrow groove for creasing the fabric. In the modern era, a strip of sodium hydroxide is poured onto the fabric, causing it to shrink, thus creating puckers. This type of fabric is not seen much anymore because it is so expensive to produce. So, finding a swath of plisse' cotton was like Christmas to me. Thanks very much for taking a look!
