Video: Embroidered Garments: Why You Should Have Them In Your Wardrobe
If you want to fill your wardrobe with unique and timeless pieces, there is no better option than traditional embroidery
This is because each of the patterns that we can find in both clothing and accessory creations carry a cultural load that gives your outfits a unique personality.
That is why choosing embroidered clothing and accessories is synonymous with originality and a timeless style that also helps to tell stories.
Ivonne Vargas, specialist in imports of Mexican embroidery in New York, assures that “having embroidered clothes in your wardrobe is like having a work of art that you can wear with style”; And considering that embroidered clothing is made by local artisans from different countries, it is a way to express your love for certain cultures, as well as the unique history of each garment.
“Having a handmade garment in your closet represents the work and creativity that a person shapes in an object; same that later will be appreciated and admired with delicacy”, adds Vargas.
But in addition to clothing, accessories with embroidered details give a plus to any outfit during any time of the year. Thus, accessories such as bags, belts, bracelets and even earrings become infallible pieces for those who are just entering the world of embroidery.
"As an alternative to the street style so common in chains like H&M and Forever 21, embroidered clothing are pieces that can be collected, with different embroidery techniques and made with different materials and colors that make them authentic," explains Ivonne Vargas.
And contrary to what you may think, taking care of these garments is less complicated than it seems. Although hand or dry cleaning is recommended, there are embroideries that can go to the washing machine without any problem. "It depends on how fine the thread is," warns the expert. The accessories, meanwhile, "it is not recommended to wash them, but if very necessary they should go to the dry cleaner," explains Vargas.
Keep in mind that you can find clothes and accessories in different embroidery techniques depending on the country of origin. Mexico and Central America have similar patterns and techniques, but they differ in designs and materials. For its part, Russia, China and India are countries that also have a strong influence on embroidery, which represent their cultural wealth.
