Monogram Mondays:  Penelope

June 16, 2014

Monogram Monday:  Alcott

Alcott Monogram

Often imitated, never duplicated...the Alcott monogram is one of Leontine's most popular applique styles. Applique is bold and modern, yet often more unique than embroidery and harder to duplicate with digital equipment. Leontine's applique styles are still drawn, stitched, and finished by hand, making them an American treasure.

One of Leontine's most popular signature styles, Addison is sublime in a master bedroom by Elizabeth Elsey. We love this monogram style for it's intricate hand-seeded embroidery details, and it's universal appeal no matter the letter combination. Photograph by Mali Azima.
