About Smith & Brighty

We design and make high quality, luxurious and unique trimmings, specialising in custom work, superbly colour-matched to the client’s choice.

The range extends from traditional trimmings for interiors, to carriages, uniforms, military and ecclesiastical.

In fact we cover the whole range of passementerie, from classical to modern.

Our work can be found in palaces, stately homes, offices and domestic interiors.

We positively welcome the challenge of unusual requests, large or small.

  • Braids


    Can be simple tabby, webbing, striped, flexible open-work, plain or multi-coloured, handwoven (our speciality), or machine made. They are used on curtains, furniture upholstery and apparel.

  • Tie Backs

    Tie Backs

    As the name suggests, they have a practical and decorative application to curtains and can be simple and minimal (cord), classically traditional through to elaborately embellished – as fanciful as you like!

  • Accessories


    Key-tassels, rosettes and pom-poms, to add to curtains, furniture, upholstery, cushions, jewellery and fashion. And of course to add to braid, fringes and tassels. Let your imagination run, and we will enjoy making it.

  • Fringes


    For use on curtains, furniture, cushions and fashion of course. They can be anything from simple cut thread fringes, medium and heavy-weight bullions, open lattice-work, with extravagant headings and pendant hangers – as fantastical as you choose.
