How “Uniforms Empire” makes items for its customers!
Do not hesitate to consult our promotions.
Here are some examples:
All our braids are braids.
Let me explain…none of our braids are made following the so-called system method, which is a much less expensive and faster method.
Unless specifically requested by the customer, we always produce our various braidson Jacquard loomsfollowing traditional methods and techniques. These are spun with either faux gold metal or fine silver metal. These are for the officers. But we also produce them incotton and/or wool in different shades for respective units and regiments. Why faux gold? It is simply due to the exorbitant prices of real gold metaland to avoid roaming costs to manufacture this metal.What is a yarn?A yarn is a core of viscosewhich is surrounded by a metal blade. This metal bladecan be of silver or 100% real Gold. This is very unusual nowadays, and it is more common to have a metal blade treated with a quantity and quality of gold.
Gold that is 2000 thousandths, 5000 thousandths, etc. is called FAUX GOLD.
When you speak of faux gold, shouldn’t you say it is poor quality gold? No. The difference between the two is the replacement of 100% fine gold = (true gold) by plated gold = (faux gold).We apply the same material to make cord, square braid, braid.
We can, at the request of the client, make our braids and trimmings in synthetic plast yarn, gold plast or silver plast.
All our embroideries are handmade with the following materials: purl, cord, yarn and sequins either in faux gold or silver.
Our Epaulettes are assembled in our workshops. We can offer a wide range of possibilities for both the embroidery patterns and models.
