In contrast to this we also run a digital embroidery workshop and are able to offer incredible results, with extremely short lead times.  With lots of experimentation we have developed our own unique way to create the traditional hand embroidery and gold work effects using the digital process. These techniques and skills are what gives our small team the ability to produce stunning, large scale pieces within a very tight turn around.
