Organic Cotton Jersey 190 - Stencil maha Dragons
The stencil-style embroidery used throughout the collection draws inspiration from the practice of hand-working embroidery designs, and focuses on the outline stencils that form the basis for any hand-machine embroidery process.
The art of embroidery is not simply down to the sewing of thread; a number of initial steps need to be taken. The design must be illustrated on a metal plate and cut to form a stencil, then mapped and brushed onto the fabric using a zinc resin. The result is an outlined version of the artwork that can then be stitched over and infilled to form the rest of the embroidery.
