is often described as decoration or trimming that is cut from one piece
of fabric and stitched to another. Its purpose is to add dimension and
texture, and for centuries embroiderers have used it to complement embroidery.
It certainly gives a higher perceived value to an embroidered design
since it reduces the overall stitch count and allows for the creation
of cost-effective, full-size graphics with interesting textures and effects
that would be impossible to create with direct embroidery alone. Appliqués
provide the perfect alternative to larger, more costly embroidery projects.
on the chosen appliqué piece, the look and feel of the embroidery
can be designed according to one's individual taste. Fashion is always
in motion. And hence today, we have designs that are screen printed on
after the embroidery process - Previously, it was the other way around.
This new technique creates a distressed look more suitable for casual
and sportswear. You may even use appliqués to add colour and depth
to your designs. Or perhaps, incorporate the appliqué in your
design from behind the base cloth rather than on top of the fabric. This
is termed a window appliqué since the ground fabric is cut revealing
the hidden appliqué.
We can offer you appliqués that have a frayed
edge, that are multi-layered, floating or perhaps and appliqué
that has been attached using a row of sequins, instead of the traditional
satin stitches. The possibilities are limitless. When your creative
juices are flowing, any fabric can be used in your appliqués -
even mesh or sheer fabrics like organza or chiffon!
our highest quality embroidery threads are combined with a multitude
of fabrics to create your masterpiece. Whatever your requirement, our
versatile designers can offer you a variety of custom options that will
not only add value to your product, but save you money too!
