When using embroideries to cover a hole in your garment, we strongly recommend that you start by patching the hole using our patch kit made from deadstock and recycled fabric.
The details of how it works
Where to apply the embroidery
Our embroideries can be applied almost anywhere you think they will look good. But be aware to avoid places on your garment with seams and/or where multiple layers of fabric join, like armpits or on pocket and crotch seems.
Which fabrics work well with embroidery
Our embroideries are tried and tested on non-stretch and stretchy cotton, jeans and canvas, finely machine knitted wool and wool/silk blends, and linen. Applying them to any other fabric will be at your own risk.
How to cover holes with embroidery
Our embroideries can easily cover holes in your garment. Start by closing the hole before applying the embroidery, using either a patch for larger holes or simply needle and thread for small holes.
