"Life has to be accessorized"

Commissions - Accessories

The House of Embroidered Paper is interested in producing fine art pieces - garments and accessories -  that are reflective of particular historical periods, personal stories and/or designs from nature;

for example bird and botanic imagery.

 

Accessory options for commission currently include bags, gloves, fans and embroidered wall hangings.

 

Whilst every collection piece is made as a one-off, a number of designs can be customised.

Therefore if you have:

- seen a style or type of item in one of the collections that you would like to have personalised;

- would like to commission the creation of something brand new - including, but not limited to, those items listed above,

then please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Please note - your accessory will be presented in a tailor made acrylic display case with a personally designed background. Bespoke frames are produced for The House of Embroidered Paper by Orchard framing, Horam

Accessories take a minimum of 3 weeks to make but lead times will vary according to the exhibition and commission schedule of The House of Embroidered Paper. All commissions are priced on application.

“Designer Charles Frederick Worth (1825-1895) is said to have been the first designer label with his signature in his creations. Early in the twentieth century, designers such as Poirot, Chanel, Lanvin and Vionnet used their labels as a means of branding their garments and protecting their designs, and the use of the label as a brand marker as continued ever since. Some labels are also used to define authenticity, with elements like number sequences or holograms offering the buyer assurance that the item is not a counterfeit copy. Labels can also serve to fill regulatory requirements in terms of defining textile content, size, care requirements, and origin…Labels or marks of ownership come in different forms, and occasionally, one might find the name of the owner embroidered or handwritten in a garment.” P55 The Dress Detective by Ingrid Mida and Alexandra Kim
