The piping tin is nothing more than a "C" shaped curved section, and a flat section with turned up sides (shaped like ] ). The curved section slips over the flat section with the filling material in between. When the two pieces are put together, it would have a shape like a "D" laid on its side. Obviously you push the whole thing into the pleat and then pull out each half separately.

The padding may be bonded cotton in the original.
