What is Chainstitch Stitch Embroidery?
Chainstitch Embroidery is a hand made form of stitch that is performed on a machine called a "BONNAZ". The BONNAZ machine was first made by the Cornely Company in France in the early 1900's. It was then licensed in the early part of the century by The Singer Company in the USA. In the US it was made famous in the Western Wear culture, Hotrod Car Clubs and Motorcycle clubs of the 1950's through to the early 1980's. Musicians like Elvis Presley and Graham Parsons also gave the art form it's iconic style and look wearing the "Nudie Suits" on there album covers and at concerts through out there careers.
What's the difference between Chainstitch and Digital Embroidery?
In a word EVERYTHING. Digital Embroidery is a computer based machine producing linear designs and logo's on garments. Designed to be fast, efficient and mass produced with everything looking exactly the same with absolutely no character.
Chainstitch Embroidery on the other hand has an unmistakable look and feel, it's a style and design that is iconic in the history of fashion. The machine is run by hand and can only be used by a skilled and trained Chainstitch Embroidery artist who has detailed understanding of the machinery and an eye for every detail of the design.
How much does it cost for Chainstitch Embroidery on my garment?
Chainstitch Embroidery is similar to the art form of tattooing in the sense that every piece is custom made and done by hand. At amR we charge out our Chainstitch service by the hour. Feel free to email us your design ideas so we can give you an accurate price.
Will I get a discount if I order more than one garment?
Unfortunately no, all our work is handmade one at a time, we employ the same methods that where used from the early 1900's. Every garment we make is a labor of love and in many cases takes many hours to produce.
How long does it take once I design and order my garment?
Time frames vary depended on our work load, the design details and where you are based in the world. We will be able to give you an accurate turnaround time once we finalize your order and take a deposit.
