The Cabochon Family
Pearls are one of the greatest symbols of luxury. Their matte harmonious shimmer made by nature can only be compared with the purity of a diamond. No wonder the textile industry is so eager to use pearls on its fabrics. But what is the best way to apply this jewelry on a dress? A round-shaped object on a flat surface is not necessarily a natural match.
Swarovski’s expertise in crystal design led to a spectacular solution:
The Cabochon Pearl.
It combines a pearl-like surface with the established Flat Back Hotfix technique.
The innovation creates a stunning pearl effect that is both easy and versatile to use.
The flexible Hotfix glue on the flat reverse side bonds with most surfaces, including wool, cotton, rayon, LYCRA®, silk, acrylic and denim.
Swarovski also expanded its Flat Back Bandings and Crystaltex Bandings lines with the Cabochon pearl.
Their release in late 2014 during the Innovations Autumn/Winter 2015/16 was certainly a great success. These two options have opened a whole new world of design possibilities for designers of fashion, accessories and even jewelry.
