The Meaning of Handmade:  Embroidery & Applique Techniques

'With more and more manufacturers searching for ways to make thier products special, the term handmade has become overused and misunderstood to the point that it has lost its true meaning and impact...At Leontine Linens, each design is first hand drawn by our artisans. The expert hand of a seamstress guides the needle of her embroidery machine, allowing for detail and self-correction that is not possible with a digitized system. Following this stage, many of the finishing details, including applique, hand turning of the piece, button closures, and the final few hemming whipstitches are done completely by hand.' - excerpt from LINENS:For Every Room and Occasion.
