From tradition to trend: Custom chenille patches

In the ever-evolving world of fashion and branding, it's the unique details that often leave the biggest impression. Enter the chenille patch. These textured, eye-catching embellishments are not just a trend, but a unique offering at Print Room that can add a distinctive touch to your garments and headwear.


What are chenille patches?

A chenille patch is a decorative patch made with plush, looped yarn to create a raised texture. It’s commonly used on clothing, uniforms and accessories.

The name "chenille" comes from the French word for "caterpillar”.

The unique craft of chenille embroidery:

Chenille embroidery is different from traditional embroidery. It involves a special machine that feeds yarn through a fabric base to create a raised surface. Rows of French knots are stitched using heavy thread like chenille or yarn. The knots are cut open to produce a fluffy, textured effect, giving chenille patches their unique appearance. These patches are then manually cut out and sewn onto garments like a patch

The appeal of custom chenille patches:

Brand identity: Custom patches enhance brand identity for businesses. Whether on employee uniforms, promotional items or merchandise, they help create a cohesive and recognisable look.

Team spirit: Perfect for celebrating achievements, sports teams, clubs, and organisations can make their gear unique by adding custom chenille patches.

On-trend: Chenille patches have gained immense popularity in the fashion industry. They adorn streetwear, haute couture, and accessories. This fusion of vintage appeal with modern aesthetics makes chenille patches a versatile and stylish choice for any brand looking to stand out.
