Embroidery Trends Autumn/Winter 2019/2020

There is still a lot of embroidery around. As often as we see big striking brand logos in all kind of experimental shapes, as often do we see embroidery. Sure, the unbelievable embroidery frenzy is slightly slowing down and with it also the huge amounts of standard embroidery emblems and patterns. However, certain things remain, such as the wish for colour and individualising a collection. This can be seen also in the latest embroidery trends:


There is always room for some „winter-neons“: a fluorescent pink from Gunold’s POLY thread brights up a grey day. This flower is embroidered in 3D technology combined with running stitches in a SULKY ombré shade

These feather details, embroidered with pure running stitches in Gunold’s matt cotton thread COTTY fit perfectly to subtle and natural Organic themes


A new look can also be achieved using unusual materials to embroider on. Very trendy are natural materials like bark (from Barkcloth) embroidered with Gunold’s new effect thread POLY FLASH or cork, here one the right side, with a COTTY (100 % cotton) embroidery


Long running stitches in contrast to short stipplings – earthy and in exceptional structures, using matt thread like Gunold‘s COTTY 30

Gunold Prisma (Viskose Effects).jpg

SULKY by Gunold, the natural viscose thread, plays with light and shadow. The prism design is stitched in one colour only. Just by changing the stitch direction, the design looks multidimensional and colourful with an astonishing depth and brilliance…


Gunold’s high quality effect threads are perfect for luxury hand embroideries, too. This beautiful sequin design was embroidered by hand from the Indian company Modi Embroidery, using SULKY 40 viscose thread


Fringes and cut-outs are still strong, allowing a deeper glance to hidden layers of contrasting fabrics…


Printed and embroidered leafs of all kinds of plants and flowers  are everywhere. Besides the monstera leave which is omnipresent, also a classic maple leaf is a beautiful design and eyecatcher, especially when embroidered with one of the greenish ombré colours out of Gunold’s SULKY viscose thread range

These and many more inspiring samples will be shown by the Gunold team at the Munich Fabric Start Show (Booth 1 / A09) or Première Vision Paris Show (Booth 4 / B26) . Hope to see you soon !

All the best,
