HANDDCRAFTED DETAILS

 

HAND SMOCKED HONEYCOMB

Enter the realm of sartorial mastery with our honeycomb smocking technique—a needle-and-thread ballet that sculpts diamond-shaped structures. The needle gracefully weaves through the first dot, repeats its rhythm with the second, orchestrates their union, and then elegantly stitches over this harmonious duo. Honeycomb smocking endows the garment with elasticity while concurrently fostering warmth and insulation within the diminutive air pockets it forms.

Our skilled artisans embroider the honeycomb technique completely by hand, ensuring the meticulous craftsmanship that defines our garments.

Rooted in German embroidery traditions since the 16th century, honeycomb smocking is the oldest of its kind. We take pride in preserving this artisanal heritage, infusing each garment with a touch of history and sophistication. Knots, tied with unparalleled care at each juncture, encapsulate the essence of our dedication to artisanal excellence.

HAND-PLEATED FROSCHGOSCHERL

The Froschgoscherl, originally adorning the bodice of a Dirndl—an emblem of traditional Bavarian attire dating back to the 19th century—stands as a pinnacle of artisanal finesse. Within our atelier, this meticulously handcrafted technique emerges as the pièce de résistance, embodying the epitome of ornate artistry.

The Froschgoscherl unfolds as a box-pleated garland trim meticulously crafted by the skilled hands within our atelier. This intricate process commences with the creation of a ribbon from the fabric of the garment. Each box pleat, a testament to precision, is meticulously folded from the ribbon and delicately pressed into its rightful place, transforming the material into a cascading symphony of texture and form.

As the process continues, the opposite midpoints between the leading edges of the pleats are delicately lifted with needle and thread and connected with a knot. This process is repeated with every pleat, invoking a dance of meticulous stitching. This handcrafted technique, reminiscent of the meticulous practices of Alpine costume, elevates the Froschgoscherl beyond a mere adornment—it becomes an ethereal manifestation of luxurious craftsmanship, a delicate ode to the art of creation.
