What is Guipure?

Guipure is now the French word for tape, but back in the days when machine embroidery was newly established, the word guipure was used to describe lace that has a gimp or thicker thread to outline the pattern. Guipure embroidery tends to be heavier than most embroidery. Widely applied on modern bridal and luxurious evening gowns, Guipure gives designs a bolder and more unique look.

How does it work?

We embroider the yarn on a water-soluble base fabric which disintegrates during the final process, leaving on the embroidery. This technique enables us to create the purest form of embroidery with various yarn materials, even wool or lurex. Now, there are also unique finishing techniques such as Chintz, which gives the embroidery a leather look.
