PAILLETTED, SEQUINED and
HAND BEADED Yarns


In the 13th century, the local public mint of the Republic of Venice was called la Zecca, and the 3.5 gram gold coins it produced were known as zecchin or zecchino. The French altered the Venetian word to sequin and it has entered English in that form." - wikipedia.org
Sequin is a shiny, metalic, disk-shaped decoration, which is sewn to clothing or attached to the thread of the yarn. "Sequins got their name from the Arabic "sikka", meaning a coin or die.
Paillette is a small, circular piece of sparkling, sometimes iridescent foil, plastic, glass, mirror or similar article, sewn onto clothes, shoes and accessories for decorative effect. It is similar to a sequin, but usually slightly larger in size.
