Hand embroidery advocates, Hand & Lock have been in business since 1767 and have since made a name for themselves as the finest quality embroiders catering to the likes of Savile Row and the Royal family. Aside from creating their embroidery school, which provides workshops and technical classes to ensure those with the creative flair have the opportunity to hone their skills, Hand & Lock have recently undertaken a new project: the London Embroidery Exhibition.
The exhibition will take place in Bishopsgate from the 12th-13th July and seeks to showcase their recent Embellished Bags project, in which they have collaborated with designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Lulu Guinness to create an exclusive collection of embroidered bags. As well as this project, the exhibition will highlight the atelier’s most iconic works, which range from Mary Kantrantzou garments to restored Victorian military pieces. Aiming to celebrate their British heritage, and promote the art of high-quality embroidery, the exhibition is set to be an exclusive sneak peek into the processes of Hand & Lock’s design and acute attention to detail.
