The Making of a Terry Jacket

May 14, 2015

The terry jackets from DUNS Sweden are a great reminder that it takes time to make our clothes. And that time is put in by skilled people using handcraft and remarkable machines.

Here you can see a visual tour of all that's involved in the making of the application on the front of the terry jackets. 17,600 stitches and 45 mins for the machine to sew 12 applications on. And this doesn't include the time it takes to place all the parts in the right place, or the time it takes to prepare and cut all the small pieces before they can start. What an amazing process.

The Embroidery Machine  - This machine requires very talented personnel to operate it.

 

Each part of the application must be placed exactly correct before the machine can be started.

 

This is very time consuming. The machine can sew 12 applications at the same time. It takes 45 mins to create the 12 owls not including the preparation time, and the time taken to place the pieces that make the owl.

Last stitches.

 

Complete, 17,600 stitches later.
