The Soutache technique, also called Russian ear, ages back to the ancient times in Eastern Europe, more precisely in Russia and Poland. Such technique was used to decorate the tsar’s army jackets as well as the tsarina’s clothes. The word Soutache appeared for the first time on the Nineteenth century and means “decorative plait”. Later, that same technique became popular to create fine and precious jewels.
The decoration work consists of combining several pieces that are realized by sewing silk and viscose threads around pearls and gemstones from various shapes.
