Welt

Welt:

A fabric covered cord that follows the seam of a cushion or pillow.  A welt cord helps give upholstery a more finished, tailored look.

There are two types of welt chords – a self-welt and a contrasting welt.  A self welt is when the chords is made of the same fabric as the cushion or pillow, and a contrasting welt is made out of a differing fabric from the cushion or pillow.

Designers love to use cushions and pillows with welt as it creates a custom, tailored, and finished look.
