Nicely Niche..


I was speaking to a friend yesterday about the appeal of embroidered patches and we were discussing where to buy them.  I don’t know the cheapest place to find them (any suggestions gratefully received – I’ll pass them on) but I do know the best:


Hand and Lock has provided the finest hand embroidery since 1767, offering everything from civilian to military regalia to ecclesiastical to couture.


They have the skill to produce intricate delights such as this.


Which can then with their bespoke service and be translated, if you so wish, into…well..the imagination is your limit.


They also offer a range of machine embroidered badges, perfect for every day.  You know they know their stuff because the sizes are perfect.

This place is a little slice of living history – it’s even possible to take part in workshops or tour the atelier. This is Britain at it’s best.
