Passementerie is a general term used for fringes, gimps, ornamental cords, tassels, trimmings and so forth that are sewn down onto a garment or textile of some form. The term can also be used to describe a form of applied embroidery, whereby a flexible cord or braid is couched down in a decorative pattern onto a ground material.
In the sixteenth century, the word passementerie had the more specific meaning of a trimming of gold or silver lace, and then slightly later it was also associated with a gimp braid or something similar. It then went out of use. The term was revived in the nineteenth century and referred to a wide range of fringes, gimps (braids) and ribbons. The items were often used on diplomatic and military uniforms. These meanings and uses continued into the twenty-first century.
During the twentieth and twenty-first centuries the term could also be used more specifically to describe any narrow braid or cord that was sewn down in a decorative manner onto a piece of cloth or garment.
Passementerie designs are popular in many countries, notably in North Africa and the Middle East (especially in the form of a narrow braid or cord couched down onto a garment of some kind).

IRAN ART EXHIBITION: The word passementerie has become synonymous with a wide variety of textile trimmings, including buttons, braids, fringing, tassels and other decorative elements.
It derives from the French, and originates from ‘passement’, a gold or silver lace or braid, and ‘parchmentry’, which included trims that used parchment wrapped in silk. Despite the fact that these terms seem to come into the English language during the 16th century, the many items which now fall under the collective term passementerie were made much earlier.
