877 Workshop Customized Chain Stitch Embroideries
877 Workshop is runned by couple Sylvia and Daniel Janssen from Hamburg, Germany. The husband and wife team loves almost forgotten crafts and techniques and bring them back to life with their new designs. Since 2012 they manufacture casual goods for men with a contemporary and effortless look in their workshop.
They manufacture casual accessories for men. All metal parts, closures, hooks, buckles, rivets are handcrafted by themself. They only use solid metals as 925 sterling silver, brass, bronze and aluminium. Their suppliers for metals, leather and textiles come from Germany and their waxed canvas from Scotland. They also offer custom engravure for a personal touch and a perfect gift.

Besides metalworks they’re absolutely fascinated by historic machine embroidery. They have a vintage chainstitching machine from the 1920’s and a freemotion embroidery machine from the fifties. Both machines are operated freehand, the chain stitching machine is operated by guiding the needle with a crank handle along the drawing. For the free motion embroidery a stitching frame is moved by hand to create the motif. You can literally write and paint with theses machines. The process is extremely time-consuming and it’s not surprising that is was replaced by computer embroidery to be economically viable.
Amsterdam Denim Days
During the upcoming Amsterdam Denim Days next week they will bring their vintage chainstich machine for doing some customizations. They will also bring some denim patches which you can add on your favorite denim jacket.
