Beech hard wood tailors clapper. Weight 800g
Smoothed and sanded, without finishing, so the wood can absorb steam. The clapper has been designed with a groove around
the middle, for easy grip and has been sanded to a silky soft finish. There have been no additives to the wood, so that it absorbs the steam. This tailor’s clapper is made in the UK by hand, from British timber. A tailors clapper is used by absorbing the steam, applied to a seam and locking in the heat. As you press down with the clapper, the pressure sets the fabric flat. The hard beech wood of this clapper, absorbs the steam and traps the heat inside the fabric. You can use the tailors clapper on quilts, seams, collars, cuffs and hems. You can also use to make kilt pleats. The clapper is used either with a spray bottle or
the steam from an iron. 11inches long.
