When you look at these pictures have you ever given a thought to Ross's braces? Well, probably not but, now I've mentioned them, maybe you might - for a moment at least.

Ross's braces are made of silk ribbon woven by Devon silk weavers Papilionaceous, who also provide the ribbon for Elizabeth's hat and hair and the taffeta for Verity's wedding hat.

Papilionaceous design and manufacture silk for ribbons, silk panels, bookmarks, braces and trimmings from their base in Dartmouth.  And if, after admiring the pictures, you fancy a pair of braces made with  Papilionaceous silk take a look at the Albert Thurston Limited Edition collection where you can buy a pair for a cool £95!
