We have found women and girls love having their embellished initials embroidered on jeans, boots, shirts and jackets. We literally have thousands of fonts that we can embellish for your monogrammed clothing. A pair of jeans is also good place to add a team mascot for your perfect cheerleader, athlete, incredible senior or alumni.
A Short History of Embroidered Clothing
Embroidery is an ancient art. Paintings found in tombs in ancient Eygypt depict couch covers, hangings, tents and clothes embellished with embroidery. Additionally, paintings found on ancient Greek vases show quilted armor-like suits adorned with embroidery stitching. Samples of embroidery work can be traced back to other countries as well, such as China, Persia, India and England. Each of these countries developed its own distinctive style of embroidery, incorporating the culture of their history and traditions. Ornately embroidered clothing, religious objects, and household items demonstrated wealth in many cultures including ancient Persia, India, China, Japan, the Bysantine Empire and Medieval and Baroque Europe (read more about ethnic embroidery styles) The embroidered household items and embroider clothing of the Elizabethan period is well renowned. Velvet, brocade and silk were stitched with gold and silver thread and the designs were often enhanced with pearls and gems. Throughout the centuries, experienced embroiderers passed their techniques down to the next generation, and each new generation of embroiderers contributed their own intricate, detailed and elaborate techniques to the art. Needlework and embroidery is very much alive in the 21st century. Just as knitting has enjoyed a modern day revival, embroidery remains a celebrated pastime (and a successful commercial industry), with embroidered items such as blankets for newborns, linens and clothing. Embroidered clothing and accessories are popular gifts for friends and loved ones.
