Unique one – size XS

Check shirt (Carhartt) with a white chainstitch embroidered “Speed Shop“ on the back.

The embroidery is stitched with a rare chain stitching machine from 1920. The machine is operated freehand by moving a crank handle – we literally draw stitched lines on the fabric.

These machines were used from 1845 to 1980 for customizing bowling shirts, varsity jackets, cheerleader sweaters or biker vests as well as for embroidering elaborate patterns on uniforms, gowns and draperies. In motorsports large advertising slogans were stitched on the back of the racing team’s overalls. Nowadays this work is done by computer operated embroidery machines. Our embroidery is unique with a charming handcrafted look and feel - a computer can’t produce this special look.
