Does anyone have a recomendation for a supplier of horsehair braid? I am looking for 1/2 inch white in large quantities, and wider colored braid. The Dritz braid is too soft.

International Silks and Woolens in LA has a huge selection of all sizes of horsehair braid upstairs in their notions area. It's kind of hidden behind the shelves in back. For large quantities you could probably go to Wall Street downtown where most of the trim stores are.

I know that Steinlauf and Stoller carry a wide variety of sizes. You can call or email for prices. I haven't ordered any myself (yet!!), but I've read several reviews stating that their horsehair braid is of excellent quality.

I get mine from Hats by Leko which was recommended to me by someone here. They have been easy and quick to deal with.
