Orris, or′is, n. a peculiar kind of gold or silver lace: upholsterers' galloon and gimp.
The galloon serves as an ornament, and it is below that the body of the garment assumes the fullness for fluting.
The place for this mark was the galloon, and it was usually executed in a lighter colour, but a single tone.
But if the artist is not yet certainly identified, the name of the weaver is certain, for on the galloon he has left his sign.
And sometimes a dealer, wishing glory through his dealings, ordered his sign in the galloon.
