The sequins are used to decorate clothes, bags, jewelry and shoes. This is most often women’s evening wear.

 

This ornament is often used to decorate regional folk costumes; this type of ornament is often found in Poland and Spain.

 

The sequins were originally made of metal, then galvanic gelatin, to be transformed into a mixture of mylar and acetate to arrive at the modern version: vinyl.
