So... what is Trikotine?
'Trikotine' is the German term for a Leonischer Draht
trimming which is a flat metallic tube that is knit from wire.
Made of super-fine copper wires that are woven together
into a stretchy netting tube, this metallic trimming has
been produced in Germany since Victorian times.
Trikotine is used in Europe by Florists and Milliners,
is a favorite of artisans for jewelry making, and is
also popular with traditional confectioners for
making old-style candy "flower" bouquets.
This glistening metallic trim can be used flat as a
decorative accent, but it is perhaps most popular
for making small candy bags as party favors.

'Trikotine' Knit Wire Mesh Tubing
Woven Wire Metallic Netting from Germany
5 meter and 100 meter rolls
This old-time Leonian wire mesh tubing is another of Blümchen's unique finds! Back in the late 1990's, at the famous Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, we showed a small piece of vintage mesh tubing to the owner of a family-run German trimmings firm. The owner was kind enough to entertain our request, and even purchased an antique machine so that he could produce this trim especially for us! Made in exactly the same style and quality as Victorian knit wire mesh tubing, we are pleased to offer this traditional Leonian decorative craft trim for professional artisans and crafters alike.
