“For the Munich show, we have quite a lot of unusual and exceptionally creative ideas in store, all focusing on our core business -embroidery”, explains Stephan Gunold, responsible for Marketing. “Our new and elaborate design sample books demonstrate how embroideries come to life with the use of different techniques and materials, thus our designers have put great emphasis in combining different embellishing elements. Our selection of different patterns will show you how striking the combination of innovative materials and techniques can be”.

Creative Embroideries “Getting Ready for Solos or Duets”

Either as a „solo“ performance or in a „duet“ with printing, lasing, engraving- Gunold is going to share all innovative and creative ideas for embroideries and as always supports you with expert advice. In addition the team based in Stockstadt has also created new ideas for seams by turning them into embellishments. Creating the design sample books, the design team was able to take advantage of the manifold products offered by Gunold.

Different upper threads, stabilizers, as well as effect fabrics and auxiliary products have all been used to demonstrate their versatility. Gunold will also present numerous product novelties. Designers might appreciate that every page of the design sample books can be emailed as a PDF document on special request. This makes it easy and convenient to decide where and how they might want to use those amazing different techniques and materials in future fashion collections- even after the show.

New Products for Spring 2013

The wool-like embroidery thread FILAINE is now available in 21 brand new, trendy colors, giving a fresh creative impetus to summer fashion and a cozy feeling to winter clothes. The new fashion colors, ranging from earth tone/berry colors to clean/cold colors perfectly complement the already existing 108 different FILAINE colors. And for that extraordinary effect of your embroidery design, just combine the wool-like FILAINE with the glossy viscose embroidery thread SULKY or with the silk embroidery thread SILK.

FILAINE, made of 100% acrylic, has a fine woolen structure nevertheless it is extremely robust and particularly convincing through high tear and rub resistance thus it is even recommended for embroideries on jeans. It is ideal for precious embroideries on woolens or knits, vintage style patterns for traditional costumes or colorful ethnic clothes. FILAINE is perfect for rustic embroideries with that typical needlework look.


Now Gunold has the right product for embroideries on waterproof or water-repellent fabrics. Just apply THERMOSEAL to the back of your embroidery using a heat press and the design becomes completely waterproof. Water and moisture will not penetrate the fabric through the tiny embroidery needle punctures. Rain gear, outdoor jackets, functional clothing can be embroidered and everybody stays dry- use on work clothes e.g. for road construction, gardening and for all outdoor jobs.


The structured fabric STEP that looks remarkably identical to lock-stitch embroidery and is therefore ideal for emblems has now a lot more stability. Instead of an iron-on coating, it is now finished with a strong, durable and fusible nonwoven (STIFFY 1950 B) on the back. Therefore emblems have not only more stability but processing this material gets a lot easier for the embroiderer.

Rather perfect results can be achieved with laser cut appliqué patches made of STEP as the laser process welds together the cut edges thus preventing the appliqué from fraying.

A fine and smooth yet tear-resistant bobbin thread is indispensable for the processing and the special impact of embroideries. BOBBY is the ideal complement for high-quality upper threads. This under thread is made of polyester and is available in black and white.
