Traditional Czech Beads

Tubes / Pipes

Czech seed beads in the shape of a short cylinder (known as PRECIOSA Tubes or PRECIOSA Pipes) which are produced using similar technology to that used of other types of seed beads, i.e. by cutting glass pipes with a round or square hole. The difference between Tubes and Pipes is visible at first glance. Tubes are cut straight, while pipes are cut diagonally. Tubes are made in sizes of 2 – 5 mm and pipes are made in sizes of 2.5 – 5 mm.

PRECIOSA Tubes include Macco (1 mm), Delica (1.3 mm) and Unica (1.6 mm) which are specific thanks to their small size.
