What do we offer?

Machine embroidery

We work with a ZSK Sprint embroidery machine. This machine has extra additions such as a sequin and a boring device. Ten different colours of threads can be used simultaneously in one design. The use of different stitch types and threads is an extra option, if so required. One of our specialities is gold and ajour machine embroidery.

Combinations

We can translate handmade embroideries into machine embroideries. On the same token we can combine machine embroideries with hand embroideries. This option offers a solution for a small couture embroidery production, for example, which would be too costly to do entirely manually.

Ronald van der Kemp

“Het Borduurburo offers hope for the future”, says Ronald van der Kemp. “It is now possible to produce right here, in the Netherlands, even when it comes to fine embroidery. Martine has the finesse and level of taste that is required for an international top quality product. Combined with her technical knowledge and creative passion, this makes her a unique craftsman, of which no equal exists in the Netherlands. It is a liberating idea that someone with her abilities and talents, who has mastered this unique specialty, is close by.”

Truike Verdegaal

“Applying embroidery techniques in my art jewellery work was new for me when I placed an order with Het Borduurburo”, says Truike Verdegaal. “There are many choices to be made concerning embroidery threads, colours, stitches, shapes, surfaces etc. Het Borduurburo knew how to execute my designs exactly as I had envisioned them. I think it is important that the feel of manual work is present, despite the machine-based execution of the embroidery. And that worked out perfectly with Het Borduurburo.”

What kind of work do we do?
Het Borduurburo, Martine van 't Hul, borduren, handwerk, kunstenaar, Dutch National Opera, opera La Morte d’Orfeo

“For the opera La Morte d’Orfeo, we needed someone at short notice, who could embroider an entire man’s suit with rhinestones. And we wanted it done in such a way that a particular colour pattern would emerge”, says Ton Joling, head of the hats department at the Dutch National Opera. “We prefer to keep everything in-house, so when we do have to outsource, we want to be one hundred per cent certain that that person has a feel for the handwork and the costume. We searched for a while and then found Martine. In her other work we not only recognised the refinement and taste, but also a sense of speed and focus in her embroidery. That’s when we knew we had found the right person.”

Boaz van Doornik, fashiondesigner, wanted to have small maple seeds on wool fabric embroidered for his menswear label, shown during the Amsterdam Fashion Week, July 2017. We first made a sample where we embroidered directly on the fabric. Finally we produced a lot of little maple seed patches, so Boaz could exactly decide where he wanted them on the suit. Because of this it literally seemed that it was blown by the wind on the suit.

Lilian Driessen, the founder of fashion label Atelier Maria Lux, wanted to have a special historical piece restored. An antique and unique jacket was once completely put together by connecting small satin straps. Due to the wear and the transience of time, this fabric had become so fragile -not wearable anymore- that it was restored in a contemporary way.

In 2013 Bugaboo, high quality Dutch stroller brand, wanted to launch a new woolen blanket for their customers. There was an exclusive presentation during the International Wool Week in Amsterdam, at their concept store at Keizersgracht 500. To make the presentation even more special, hand embroidery initials were made on the spot for customers who bought the newly designed blanket.

In 2012 a new fashion hotel was opened in Arnhem. Het Borduurburo was asked to embroider room number 8. For this project, we made a small scale model that we covered completely with hand embroidery. The scale model was photographed and with these pictures, the wallpaper was designed and enlarged glass beads (hand-blown by the Nationaal Glasmuseum Leerdam).
