Embroidery house, Hand & Lock can trace it’s history back to when a young Huguenot refugee from France named M. Hand came to London in 1767 and began manufacturing and selling lace to military tailors.
Hand & Lock are now London’s premier embroidery house providing embellishment services to the Royal Family, top European design houses, the Royal Armed Forces, Savile Row and members of the public. In our central London atelier we offer a range of services from hand monograms and bridal customisation to goldwork blazer badges and machine embroidered logos. Every commission we undertake receives the highest care and attention from our team of dedicated embroidery designers and expert embroiderers. Whether you are a top Italian designer or a new parent looking to monogram your daughter’s christening outfit the process the process is exactly the same.
Great place, they offer amazing services, would absolutely recommend
Excellent, swift, effortless, premium service - 5/5! Great communication on phone, email and in-person - I would 100% use their services again and recommend them to everyone! They were able to replace some unique buttons that I had been missing on a very special vintage blazer. I'm so happy with the result! I had previously gone to The Restory for a similar service - they quoted me nearly £200 to replace these 2 x buttons, plus a 12 week turnaround!! Hand & Lock were able to match my buttons within 2 days at a FRACTION of the price! Thank you Hand & Lock for saving my wedding guest outfit, in such a short time! More...

I worked with Hand & Lock on an SS15 collaboration shoot, which was fantastic. Their garments were impeccable... Not to mention the amount of fun we had on this shoot.
These guys monogrammed an Oxford shirt for me. Beautiful workmanship! I'll definitely use their services again.
Met these girls at Premiere Vision. I can see the dedication towards craftmanship! If you girls see this, please email me!

Such talent ! Now had many monograms done for myself and as gifts by hand and machine embroidery- it’s addictive !! Everything should be monogrammed in my opinion � Bravo Hand & Lock �
