Traditional Buckram

Traditional Buckram, originally uploaded by jane_stockton.

This is a traditional mesh and cardboard buckram. It is used for a variety of purposes, but especially in hat making.

This is the stuff I was trying to track down a couple of weeks ago. Managed to find some, and cheaper than what I was paying for it previously!

My new supplier is:

CJ Preston Milliners
38 Walsh St
West Melbourne VIC 3003

Ph: (03) 9329 8944
Fax: (03) 9329 6537

Cassie was the very helpful person I spoke to. They also had the cloth covered millinary wire much cheaper than other places as well. They are out of buckram at the moment, I got the last three metres, but they will be getting more stock in about the end of March, beginning of April.
