How to Order

Are you new to embroidery? Look below at the steps we follow to create your bespoke piece.

Whether you are looking for a subtle monogram, bridal customisation, a family crest or embroidery for your fashion collection the team at Hand & Lock are on hand to make the whole process easy and straightforward.

Whatever embroidery you are interested in it all starts with a simple conversation with our expert designers. We have specialists across all embroidery disciplines who can help you realise your vision on budget and on time. Your dedicated designer will listen to your ideas and present relevant designs and samples. The H&L team can work from a fully annotated design or collaborate closely with you from a brief, an idea or theme.

To help manage your budgets on large scale orders we can offer two production options. Your embroidery can be produced in the UK at our London atelier or alternatively in India at an atelier we have managed since 1926. Above all, whichever location you choose your embroidery will be produced to the highest standards.
