Kuchi and Turkoman chain fringe for tribal and fusion belly dance costuming. Kuchi chain fringe is more traditional while Turkoman chain fringe adds more flash. Vintage, new or used, tribal chain fringe adds depth and texture to any DIY project.
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. Begin by using upholstery or other heavy duty thread and take a stitch every two links or so. Knot frequently to keep chain secure if the thread breaks.
