Luxury Embroidered Fabrics

Luxury embroidered fabrics are the type of high fashion cloth featuring elegant appliques on a tulle. Often embellished with glittering beads, bugles and sequins, they are regularly favoured by the world's most iconic fashion houses. Not surprisingly, their creation is a very complex technological process.

These fabrics are the first choice for evening outfits, such as dresses, skirts, blouses or jackets. Plus, they can also be used for finishing, turning even a mediocre dress into the true statement of luxury.

Exclusive Tulle Fabrics

The most common type of embroidered fabrics is tulle. Translucent and airy, it has a net structure that makes it easy to apply the décor onto. A tulle fabric is often embellished with beads, bugles, Swarovski crystals and sequins. Some of the most luxury embroidered tulles are created by such renowned fabric manufacturers from Europe as Aldo Bianchi, Jakob Schlaepfer, Forster Rohner, HOH and Sophie Hallette. Embroidery is a traditional part of festive Asian clothing, so no wonder Fair Lady — the luxury tulle manufacturer from India — has much succeeded in that. This company uses beads, glass bugles, crystals and rhinestones to decorate their fabrics. It takes many hours of handwork and a lot of patience for a dozen specialists to embroider one single metre of tulle. However, it all pays off: the evening gowns created out of luxury embroidered fabrics turn any woman into a magnificent goddess — and not necessarily from the Indian pantheon!

Embroidered Chiffon, Sheer and Sparkling

Semi-transparent and soft, silk chiffon is another classy fabric often adorned with sequins, feathers, faux fur and other luxury décor. Why do fashion designers love chiffon? Sheer, it always looks chic and is perfect for underlay — from contrast tunic to lingerie. Plus, silk chiffon fabric has a softer finish and feels tender against your skin. However, not all embroidered chiffon fabrics are silky. Sometimes chiffon manufacturers try to achieve various visual effects. One of the world’s most famous brands producing this fabric is Jakob Schlaepfer — the Swiss company, whose designs have been iconic in the fashion world for over 50 years. Their 2018 collection comprises faux fur chiffon, Swarovski feathered chiffon, sequined chiffon, ruffled chiffon, holographic fringed chiffon and sequined layered chiffon. Sounds intriguing?

Tweed Boucle Fabrics, the Timeless Luxury

It’s not a big secret that tweed boucle originates from the cheapest men’s fabric that had a zero level of luxuriousness at the beginning of the 20 th century. Due to the ingenious artistic talent of Coco Chanel, in the 1920s a man’s tweed suit was transformed into a legendary tweed boucle one, and it became the icon of women’s independence from the rigid cultural and moral restrictions in fashion. Needless to say, her masculine-looking suits were criticized and did not receive much recognition during that time. In fact, madame Chanel just put the whole thing up to the mid-fifties, when all the craze began...

Since 1954, tweed boucle has been renowned as the timeless fabric perfectly appropriate for a business meeting, catching up with friends or a romantic date.

Luxury fashion trends offer a range of exquisite boucle versions — embroidered with sequins, floral appliques, silver strip trims and many others. These fabrics are mostly made for dresses, jackets, skirts and sweatshirts. You can also use them for exclusive finishing of your outfits made of wool or cotton.
