The pairing of the holdback with the drapery is one that is like a dance lesson. Where compliment is of the utmost importance and stepping on toes or taking the lead is not acceptable.
The holdback is the jewelry to the perfect dress, the tie to the perfectly tailored suit.
The style of its dance partner is reflected in its addition. Vintage or casual it holds its partner with grace.
This dance doesn't need a ballroom, just a window to frame and a fabric to hold.
