Embroidered flags are beautiful bespoke pieces of art which are painstakingly produced by hand. Larger sections of your artwork are sewn by machine with details and finishing touches been delicately added by hand. These wonderfully personalised pieces are tailored made to your wishes with a hint of artistic impression as the design takes shape.
How we do it
The process below is explaining the stages after we receive an order and a proof of the design has been signed off.
Whatever the style or design of the piece the production process begins with the design. Generally, heraldic pieces require us to obtaining a copy of the design from the College of Arms in London, other designs are produced as original work from supplied artwork. The design is then digitised re-produced at full size which gives the embroiderers a guide for the artwork.
Materials are cut and certain elements of the piece may be sub-assembled for use later, whilst other components will enter the sewing room, where beautiful ornate design come to life, with hours been spent producing the perfect recreation of your design. Sewing is done by both hand and machine often requiring layers of embroidery to create an immaculate finish.
There are a range of finishing touches that can be applied to really complete this premium piece, embellishments, such as, fringing and tassels. As designs are often double sided we can finish in a style which allows the peice to be hung or carried, dependent upon requirement.
Commissioning Embroidered Flags
Let us guide you through the process of commissioning and producing a beautiful bespoke hand embroidered flag. These stunning pieces are so much more than recreations of existing designs. They become works of art, each flag reflects slightly the skill and style of the individual producing the piece. The finished product becomes a stunningly unique interpretation of the starting design.
We would typically begin the process by paying you a visit at a time of your convenience. This allows us to get a true idea what you are looking for in your artwork. We will try and establish factors such as your design ideas, material preferences, finishing styles and sizing at this stage.
The next stage would be to give you a quotation based upon the details you have given previously. The complexity of the design, size and finishing styles are among some of the factors impacting the cost. Following this you’ll start to see the design really come together, your initial design will be digitalised prepared for work to begin. You receive a final digital proof of your design where you have one last opportunity to tweak your artwork before production. If you are totally satisfied then production can begin. Time scale can depend upon the complexity of the design, we would make you aware of an expected delivery date at the proofing stage.
The rest is up to us; we’ll begin production and be ready to answer any queries that may come along the way. Before finally delivering you completed piece of artwork, an item totally bespoke and individual to you.
We have created a product gallery including both samples and finished works. We are hopefully this will give a better indication of the detail which goes into creating these striking pieces.
