Embroidery on lather
To embellish leather with motifs, leather can be embroidered. Embroidery on leather has a long history as an artistic and decorative element. Even in ancient times, leather was adorned with embroidery to give clothing, accessories, and furnishings a special aesthetic. The use of embroidery on leather dates back to ancient Egypt, Greek and Roman civilizations, as well as the Middle Ages.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, embroidery on leather also gained popularity in fashion. Bags and shoes were embellished with intricate embroidery to add a touch of elegance and individuality. The techniques and motifs continued to evolve.
Over time, embroidery on leather has evolved and become an important design element. Modern embroidery techniques allow for a variety of styles and effects. From hand-stitched traditional motifs to machine-made designs with computer-controlled patterns, creativity knows no bounds. Embroidery on leather remains a timeless art form that reflects the history and culture of different eras while providing space for artistic innovations.
The best way to do this is by using industrial embroidery machines for textiles and leather. The embroidery machine shown in the video (see below) (www.ledermanufaktur.com) is a 6-needle machine.
