Japanese thread is a round thread made of a metal foil wrapped around a cotton core, bright and smooth in appearance. It is soft and flexible, and used for couching. Often the thread is couched two threads at a time, and stitched down using a sewing thread of similar or contrasting colour. Japanese thread is popular for Or Nue work.
