Piercing technique is a method that is using in the fashion industry to create a lovely pattern on the outfits. In this technique, the fabric is subject to piercing after weaving. The reason behind doing so is that when this fabric stitched into some outfit and wore, light entering through piercing creates and highlights the pattern on it.
You can find many innovative and exciting designs created by using piercing techniques in fashion and furnishing industry. Piercing technique is using more on leather. Pattern and holes made on the fabric depend on the end use of the product. Other than fashion and furnishing, pierced clothes are also using to control light.
Anyone can create a pierced material at home using craft knives, and with hole punching equipment, etc. However, one has to be very careful with the process.
Depending on the purpose of the end use, the piercing should not be too much or too less. For examples, if you are doing the piercing on leather to make a handbag, it should occur only in small area and holes must not be large because bigger holes or holes in greater area decrease the strength of the material, making it too fragile to carry weight. Therefore, it is always a good idea to determine the piercing need depending on usage of the end use product.
