Different types of Embroidery are used in our garment. We are very much conscious about our client wants. In below you can see different types of Embroidery with details which we use generally.
1. Whitework embroidery:
This type of embroidery refers any embroidery technique, where stitching is the same color as the foundation fabric.
The term whitework embroidery has covered a large range of techniques through the years. A basic description would be that it is white stitching on white fabric, but that wouldn’t really do it justice.
Whether it is delicate Hollie Point on a baby’s bonnet, intricate Reticella (as shown in the photo) or a cushion cover worked in Hardanger, there is a style to suit all.
It is one types of white work embroidery that traditionally uses an unbleached cotton thread on a piece of unbleached muslin.
Candlewick embroidery is a type of White work or white-on-white embroidery. Large knots are embroidered in heavy thread on heavier-weight cotton or linen embroidery fabric using the Colonial knots.
Popular for use as bed and window coverings in Colonial America, this type of embroidery is easy to learn and quick to stitch. It is commonly used in quilt making.
Originally, actual unwaxed candlewick thread was used to work this type of design, as it was a plentiful and inexpensive type of thread at the time. While today it is often worked in multiple colors, candle wicking was originally worked in natural colored threads on unbleached heavy linen or cotton.
3.Cross stitch embroidery
A cross stitch is an x-shaped embroidery stitch from which the name of Cross Stitch Embroidery is derived. It is easily accomplished by stitching two half stitches over each other. This stitch is the basis for all cross stitch. You will see it the most, and it is the most commonly used. This is the stitch with cross-stitch. You will base all other stitches on this first one. You will add and subtract to create other stitches and patterns.
4. Pulled Thread Embroidery
This type of embroidery is a counted thread technique stitches, which are worked around groups of threads in the base fabric to form gaps, airy fillings, creating lacy, bands, borders and hems.
Hedebo is a form of whitework embroidery related to reticella work. It is sometimes classed as an embroiderd cell. It originates from the Danish farming community of the Heden, ‘heath’, area between Copenhagen, Køge and Roskilde.
6.Drawn thread embroidery:
Drawn thread embroidery is a technique that requires the stitcher to remove either vertical or horizontal threads from the fabric before stitching. The stitching itself in drawn thread work is usually both functional and decorative the stitches hold the remaining threads together while adorning the area worked.
7. Hardanger embroidery:
Hardanger embroidery is a simple form of white work. It involves counted thread stitches, drawn thread work and some pulled thread embroidery. It was traditionally used for linens, caps, and aprons.
Modern patterns include tablecloths, runners, pillows, ornaments and framed samplers. Most often geometric in design, it is also possible to create pictures in hardanger.
people are using the term “crewel” to talk about a certain style, but that’s not quite right. Crewel work isn’t about any specific kind of design; it’s all about the thread. Crewel work requires crewel thread, a strong, long-staple thread spun from wool.
When you see a modern take on crewel embroidery that involves other fibers besides wool, it’s not technically crewel embroidery. It’s surface embroidery. Sure, it might have similar stitch work, but it’s not the same thing.
You can use any design you want when you’re doing crewel embroidery. True, you’ll typically see certain families of stitches in crewel work (although the variety of stitches you can work with is pretty much endless). But as long as you’re using wool thread, it’s legit crewel embroidery.
Surface Embroidery is a broad term that encompasses many styles and techniques of embroidery where the stitches are decoratively applied to embellish a ground fabric with needle and thread.There are hundreds of stitches used in each of these techniques. These many distinctive surface embroidery stitches can be used for filling motif shapes, working curves, creating outlines, adding texture, and strengthening edges. The course explores various stitch families and groups used in surface embroidery and their function in design.
Goldwork is a technique long used to signal affluence and has attracted artisans and patrons with its luxurious shine and alluring texture for thousands of years. Goldwork consists of three or four basic stitches, which in combination create beautiful works of art.
Goldwork is the most regal and luxurious of embroidery techniques. Once accessible only to the wealthy, goldwork embroidery was used historically to adorn ecclesiastical textiles, military uniforms, and clothing and textiles for the nobility.
Today, goldwork is more accessible than it used to be, and is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity as a popular needlework technique.
11. Redwork Embroidery:
Redwork encompasses any type of embroidery worked in red thread on white or natural-colored fabric (usually muslin). This style of embroidery is most commonly worked in basic surface embroidery-stiches and cross stitch. Redwork has been commonly used in folk embroidery since stable dyes were developed in Turkey.
Redwork patterns can also be worked in blue threads on white fabric and are then referred to as Bluework. And while it’s less traditional, you can work almost any pattern in a single color on any color background you like. It’s no longer redwork, but this single color stitching is beautiful while taking inspiration from the original.
12. Sashiko embroidery:
Sashiko is a form of Japanese folk embroidery using the basic running stitch to create a patterned background. The geometric patterns include straight or curved lines of stitching arranged in a repeating pattern. The Japanese word Sashiko means “little stabs” and refers to the small stitches used in this form of needlework.
Originally, sashiko was used as a form of darning to repair or add strength to worn areas of clothing or to create insulated double-layer coats. Due to its beauty and durability, it has become an art form rather than just functional and is very popular with quilters.
