Tacks & Gimp Pins
Upholstery Tacks and Gimp Pins are used in traditional upholstery to fix fabric and materials into position on furniture, chairs and sofas. Blued cut tacks is the full name for upholstery tacks. The heat treatment they go through helps prevent rusting and they are 'cut' sharp to a point. Coloured gimp pins often blend with the fabric and tend not to be visible.
