Classic Hemstitch

Perhaps the most classic hand embroidery technique is the hemstitch. In France it is called Les Jours because of the little bit of daylight that can be seen between each stitch. Our Les Jours and Whitework hemstitch collections are done the traditional way, by hand, with the threads drawn out of the warp and waft of the fabric and then wrapped with either a white or coloured thread. It takes time, patience and skill.
