Our Services & Craftsmanship
Sewing, Embroidery & Bespoke Manufacturing for Luxury Brands & Industries
A luxury product begins with a love for the craft. We are dedicated to preserving the skills to enhance and secure the future for manufacturing in the UK and build on the UK’s heritage in textiles.
The exquisite art of hand-stitching can add the touch of luxury to almost any product. Whether it be precisely applying labelling, embellishing or a finishing technique, our extensive team of hand-sewers are experienced with all types of fabrics.
Working with world-renowned couture fashion houses, interior brands and the largest producers of fine cashmere worldwide, we specialise in blanket-stitching for cushions and blankets, being one of the largest in the UK to offer this luxurious finish using our heritage Singer machines coupled with traditional hand-finishing techniques.
Using our multi-head digital embroidery machines, we can produce a wide range of applications including logos, emblems, text and images as well as individual sew on badges to any design with a variety of finishes.
Although its main application is digital printing, It's great for the removal of an embroidery stabiliser, Thermogause. When embroidering cashmere products to the highest quality, thermogauze is applied to the reverse of the product to aid with stabilising stitches while embroidering.
Hot Foil Printing & Debossing
Metallic Elephant’s Hot Foil machines are the best in the business and are used worldwide for personalisation and branding for luxury brands.
At LLUK, we have a KSF Mini that is a smaller version of the original KSF hot foil press machine, however is light enough to be portable and can be used for pop-up events, yet powerful enough for everyday industrial use on leather goods and paper products.

Darning is a traditional sewing technique used to repair faulty areas in fabrics. The process involves using a needle, and high-quality yarns that will be weaved into the damaged fabric following the same pattern/weave. The repaired areas will then blend into the fabric, and be sent for undergoing cleaning/finishing processes.
