Our Bearissima Batiste is the ground fabric for our Swiss Embroideries. What a beautiful difference it makes having the trim and fabric weight match in the finished garment!
Bear Threads Swiss Embroideries are superior to any others because we use a smaller diameter embroidery thread and our stitch count is greater. This gives the most detail and cleanest finish.
Our embroideries are offered in white, ivory, ecru, and ecru on white as well as colors on white. Please note that embroideries stitched with colored thread are not necessarily Handlooms.
Handlooms are exactly as the name implies-- they are loomed on a machine which is entirely hand-powered (i.e. there is no electricity used in the production.)
Our Guipures are 100% Swiss Cotton as well. Guipures are unique in that the ground fabric is chemically burned away; leaving an "open lace" look.
We also have Swiss embroideries on our Bearlin, (Swiss cotton linen blend fabric), Swiss organdy and tulle (net). In all cases, we also offer the ground fabric as yard goods.
