CONTEMPORARY DESIGNS

A range of hand embroidered contemporary designs using innovative techniques and incorporating a variety of metallic threads, silk yarns and appliqued textures.

As all designs are made to order and to the exact dimensions required, there is no need to cut through the embroidered fabric and no wastage.
Appearance of any seams are minimised as panels are joined prior to embroidery and the design is hand stitched over the seams.

All items are entirely bespoke and can be made to client's own design and specifications.
