Trending in Embroidery – The Etiquette of the Monogram
One of the hottest trends in embroidery is having both sports apparel and other articles of clothing monogrammed. As most people know, a monogram is a set of initials tied to a certain person of even their family. Historically, the monogram is an ancient way of identifying personal belongings.
Once only for royalty, the monogram was almost the signature of the wealthy that dates back to early Greek and Roman rulers. By the Middle Ages, monograms were a commonplace way to mark or brand their products. This was especially true of artisans. In contrast, monograms of today that while still shouting refinement and hinting at wealth, are a trendy status symbol way to personalize gifts, especially wedding gifts. Currently, they are especially popular with teenage girls on their sporting apparel.
