Bespoke embroidery, from the embroidery masters.

The process starts with a visit to meet your designer at our central London studio. They 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 a theme. Your dedicated H&L designer will then create an embroidery draft for your approval, making changes and alterations where required.

When you are satisfied, your embroidery will be produced by our team of highly skilled and experienced embroiderers. With heritage, experience and an unparalleled understanding of the possibilities of bespoke embroidery, H&L are on hand to help you realise your design ambitions.


Prices are subject to design and production. For bespoke embroidery work the price on factors including complexity, size, relief and design times.
