commissions & bespoke, 2019 statement



Knembroidery is a bespoke embroidery service created by Josephine Knechtli.

I have been teaching myself and developing the craft of freemotion stitching since utilising embroidery to avoid college and stay in the real world, without being seen as a slacker...

All patches are created using materials which have been curated for their high quality and ability to render imagery accurately.

I operate between my bedroom and studio, currently this is a solo operation but I dream of being able to provide creative and inspiring employment for others in the future.

Custom, personalised work is always welcome.


Sephrose has organically developed alongside the patch production to form a series of limited edition shirts. As it is a core value, each shirt design remains a one-off piece.

Bold imagery rendered through delicate stitching, ensuring a subversive edge to all of your outfits - regardless of what they’re for.

The 2019 series is focused line of thick, comfort fit garments stitched up and celebrating the inclusive female form. The concept for this shirt came about after being invited out with a clear lack of ‘something to wear’. I wasn’t looking to ditch my jeans so created an embroidered collage of girls to help me out.

As each shirt is a one off composition, and with new figures being added into the lottery mix each week - the line is mindfully developing to reach your ideals and representation in figures and forms.
