A satin-stitch monogram style digitized from artwork from the early 1900s. The letters have a japanese flavor, with the look of a western alphabet painted with ink and a brush. There is quite a bit of height variation from one letter to the next, and a natural flow to the letter shape.
A satin-stitch monogram style with a flowing, handmade quality, and variation in height from one letter to the next - which one would expect from a style created by someone with a brush.M
The artwork for this monogram set was commissioned from Kipp T. Jarden, a traditional animator with a 2008 BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design. You can see more of his work on his website at http://www.kippjarden.com.
This monogram style is digitized from early 20th Century calligraphy that itself is based on sgraffitto - an ancient process of decorating pottery by scratching through layers of color. To the modern eye this style looks very fresh - even mid-century modern - great for towels because of its wide satin stitch columns.
The Cornely (chainstitch) embroidery machine was developed for production in the 1888s to automate a popular hand stitch where the needle penetrates the fabric, comes back up through a loop of thread and proceeds in this fashion to create a chain of thread. These machines are still in use today for "fancy stitch" embroidery.
A modern embroidery machine uses two threads - a top thread and a bottom (bobbin) thread which lock together as a series of stitches is sewn. This type of machine can't make a true chainstitch, but it is possible to simulate the look of one. For this monogram style we have simulated a chainstitch, and to provide a bit more density for towels and thick fabrics there are two parallel runs of these stitches making up the parts of each letter. They are carefully crafted to maintain a handmade look.
