Chenille Badges

Chenille has re-invented itself as high fashion. This form of embroidery was very popular in the 70's and 80's but now it has become more sophisticated, as well as giving your product a retro feel.

So if your target market is the high end and your garment needs something to differentiate itself, then this is the way to go.

Chenille works great with traditional embroidery, to capture the detail. Chenille thread is too thick for general text and it needs a solid base (usually felt) to embroider onto then you sew through the felt onto the item that you want to attach it to.

We have over 270 different coloured chenille threads that we can use and a wide selection of felt colours. Chenille brings a huge level of prestige to any product by having a two-party embroidery process, however this is reflected in the price.

Please note:

  • Minimum order is 100

  • We don't offer chenille directly embroidered only as a badge

  • Sampling is via artwork. Actual samples work out very expensive.

  • Designs typically have to be large and simple, any fine detail will be achieved using standard embroidery thread.

  • Small designs are unsuitable for chenille

Chenille Letters & Numbers are very popular especially for Varsity (Letterman) jackets, see examples:
