Hippy Clothing Feature: Fabulous Hand Embroidered Clothes

embroidered hippy dress

We're well known locally for our hand embroidered clothes, which we stock in-store in Brighton's famously funky Lanes. And our reputation is growing further afield as more and more people buy our lovely embroidered clothing online.

We thought it'd be fun to take a look at some of our best-selling pieces, including our fantastic embroidered hoodies.

Mix and match embroidered clothes – Have fun with our hippie clothes

Sumptuous patterns, skilfully torn fabrics, detailed beading, complex stitching, painting, tie dye, patchwork and applique make our beautiful embroidered items a must for anyone with gypsy fashion at their heart.

You can either wear just one stunning embellished piece to accessorise a plain outfit, for example black leggings, a plain black or white top plus a fantastically- patterned hoodie in gloriously vivid colours. Or go for broke and mix 'n' match different embroidered pieces together for a wonderfully romantic layered gypsy look, like a living rainbow.

Best of all, because they're made by hand every item is ever so slightly different... full of personality, and much more fun than boring, everyday high street fashion.

Gorgeous embroidered hoodies – Spread the joy

We stock an exciting range of embroidered hoodies, with something for every taste, for men and women.  Take our hand painted patchwork hoodie, fresh from Nepal and each one a unique little work of art. It's made from vibrant-coloured 100% cotton and like all our Nepalese clothes, is sourced ethically with no child labour involved.

There's also an amazing 'torn' version, where our friends over in Nepal have carefully torn jewel-coloured fabric to create a fantastic, complex design then embroidered over the top. The result? A luxurious, soft and easy-to-wear hoodie with a big difference. Why not take a look at our extensive hoodie department and see if anything takes your fancy?

Hand embroidery t shirts and tops

Are you looking for a unique strappy top for regular summer wear or a special occasion? Our customers adore our selection of  embroidered tees and vests, some hand painted and patchworked, others tie dyed or tiered to feminine perfection.

We particularly love this strappy patchwork and embroidered vest top with its complex, detailed stitching and artistic patchwork, crafted carefully using a bunch of really beautiful, subtle colours. And this bright, feminine flowing, dress-like Indian top from Coline, with its beautiful colour scheme and frilly layers, cool as a cucumber over leggings, with denim shorts or a little skirt.

Sun dresses – Discover a super sun dress with a difference

Colourful combat trousers with a thrilling twist

Our Gringo patchwork trousers are loose and comfy as well as joyfully colourful and unusual. Many are unisex. Some come with multicoloured hand painted panels, others are plain, made carefully using simple squares of vivid cotton fabric. We even have a pair of very cool Nepalese black patchwork trousers, loose and flowing with fab sun, star and goddess designs, perfect if you prefer your hippy fashion a little more subtle!
