AbstractThe invention relates to elongated textile elements having one or more thickened portions along its length, processes for their manufacture and the articles produced with such elements.The element is characterized in that it consists of an assembly of substantially parallel yarns of high bulk, which possesses, over its length, at least two compressed zones of low diameter separated by a bulky zone of high diameter.These elements, used by themselves or in association with other materials, make it possible to obtain very decorative articles suitable for garments and especially for furnishings such as tapestries, wall coverings, seat covers and the like.
