Day Tripper - 1960s braid trim

Day Tripper Wide Braid Trim - Red

Incredible four-color vibrance in this big 3-inch-wide braid trim, dating from the 1960s / 1970s. Edged in waves of green and yellow, swirls of yellow & green cascade down a red background centered with a bold stripe of blue.

Hard to find trim of this vintage in this width, but here it is! Would make a terrific guitar strap.

3 yards, 20 inches available; all for $19.
(There's a seam at the 2 yard, 21 inch point which is fairly inconspicuous from the front. Done by manufacturer at time of production.)
