Hand Embroidery and Machine Embroidery are elegant, artistic ways to express your artwork on your brand’s clothing.

Embroidery and Patches

Embroidery on your garment is beautiful way to personalize a garment and add artwork to your clothing that brings to life your brand identity.

Embroidery is a decorative needlework that can either be realized by hand or with the use of a special machine.

There are several embroidery stitching techniques, each of which results in a distinct look on your clothing. The main 2 embroidery techniques are linear stitch and chain technique.

The embroidery can be performed directly on the garment or it can be first realized on a separate textile, that will end up becoming what we all know as a “patch,” which will later be applied to the garment in manufacturing.

In the first case, the embroidery is realized on the cut panels at our factory, before the garment cut panels are sewn together to produce the final garment. This workflow allows better quality and higher precision because it is for the human operator to place cut panels into the embroidery machine.

On the contrary, the patch is produced before cut and sew production. The patch, often times produced by a specialty facility and sent to the factory. The patch is then applied to the garment during production using a single needle sewing machine or heat press.

At Urth Apparel, we have in-house specialists in embroidery and patch work who can advise you and help you choose the embroidery technique that is right for your brand.
