With many locks, the threads are tied together with a knot to form a chain.
But with chain locks, it is the threads themselves that are tied, not the knot.
Lockstitch is the process of sewing a chain onto a piece of leather.
It has its origins in the Middle East and is a form of weaving.
It can be made from threads, thread paper, or fabric.
A chain will be made by attaching a chain link to a leather chain.
The chain can then be woven onto the leather and the finished product can be worn as a bracelet or a chain-stitched necklace.
What is a lockstitching machine?
Lockstitching machines are machines that use a process called hand stitching, in which threads are stretched and attached to a thread to form chains.
A lockstitcher can be a chain maker, a lockmaker, or an industrial lockstichter.
