 COMING SOON! Sewing Gem - Wooden Clapper - Pressing Tool
The clapper is used to flatten bulky facings, collars, edges, buttonholes pleats and hems. Pressing with the clapper after steam ironing forces moisture out and creates a sharp edge without scortching the cloth.
Use clapper to beat or 'clap' the steam into the fabric, leaving a superb edge or flattened seam. 
Please note, the timber is Locally sourced and sustainable dried and sawn on site at our carpenters in Surrey. It may have grain and colour variations which do not affect the use of the product. 
How to use your tailor's clapper: Place garment right side up on a flat surface. Steam iron an area the size of clapper. Immediately apply clapper, pressing firmly for a few seconds
