Embroidery has long been an integral part of our identity; the intricacy and elaborate nature of the embellishments on a Double D Ranch garment is part of what sets us apart.

Soutache embroidery is always a favorite, with its widely-recognizable swirling elegance, but in Maria, we also incorporated what’s known as Chiapas embroidery. The long stitches are often dovetailed with threads of slightly different hues for a gradient appearance of depth and detail to the flower petals.

“The aesthetic of Chiapas embroidery is significant and pervasive throughout the Maria collection,” said Cheryl. “You’ll see it in the form of actual embroidery in several pieces, and we also translated it into a custom lightweight print that we designed into a variety of feminine silhouettes. It’s becoming somewhat hard to find true Chiapas embroidery these days, but it’s a long, looping stitch, usually in a slightly shiny or shimmery thread, in traditional floral designs. A lot of times you’ll find it on sheer or mesh fabrics, which can serve as kind of a canvas.”

The stitch style takes its name from the Free and Sovereign State of Chiapas, the southernmost state of Mexico, known to be one of the country’s largest producers of handcrafted items, including textiles and embroidery.
