English embroidery, the star of elegance and refinement

Always on the lookout for the latest trends, our Actuelle fashion experts have found a noble and elegant fabric that will seduce you with its refinement: embroidery anglaise.

The history of English embroidery

Even if it is called English embroidery, this fabric comes to us more widely from the United Kingdom, Scotland and Ireland in particular. Popular during the second part of the 19th century, English embroidery was used for women's underwear and children's clothing. Abandoned, it finds its letters of nobility in the 50s where a revival of the English embroidery takes place.
The English embroidery is very quickly distinguished for its fresh and summery aspect, synonymous with the beautiful days and delicacy, which makes it a a summer must-have for any fashionista. Its bucolic style brings a real freshness to your look! The English embroidery is distinguished by its many floral and plant motifs, which gives it its feminine aspect. It is a fragile material, however, which requires special care and attention.
