This month we are going to rave about embroidery! Whether on shirts, coats, pants, purses, shoes, and more; hand embroidery is a unique and decorative way to showcase your handmade fashions.
Examples of embroidery have been dated as far back as the 3rd century BC in China;and was also very important in Islamic culture as it was a sign of high social status in Muslim societies. it is a beautiful process that has been around for years, and the way we have integrated into our everyday wear is unique, beautiful, and will never be a trend that will fail as it is an unstoppable art.
Remember, supporting handmade artisans means so much more than you may know; a handmade item is valued far more than an item that was made for mass consumption. There is a sense of authenticity and originality where handmade is concerned. There are so many other reasons; but lets start by rejecting the mass market of mediocrity.
