A Stitch In Time
When taking a closer look into our precious couture pieces, you may notice the extreme detail that goes into crafting a one of a kind Angelo Galasso garment. A very important aspect in the making of every collection is the Final Stitch, a unique kind of stitching technique performed by state of the art embroidery machines. This kind of stitch detail is the exact representation of our motto Tradition in Evolution, as the designs created by the machines are based on traditional hand stitch patterns that are a crucial part of the Italian Tailoring and Embroidery Tradition. This is why a single Stitch is so important in preserving the identity of our brand, because it mixes the tradition of hand embroidery that is so dear to our heart with the new and advanced technologies available. This new feature “A Stitch In Time: The Galasso Signature” aims to open the doors of our world to all our customers, letting them inside and behind the thought process and the effort Angelo puts in creating every single piece. Every once in a while, we will describe one of our signature stitches and give you full access to the story behind it.

The Punto Sella, or Saddle Stitch in english, is a decorative stitch made with long stitches on the upper side of the cloth alternated with short stitches on the underside. In the beginning it was only used when sewing leather and it could only be made by hand, with the advent of sewing machined it could only be sewn straight. It was chosen mainly because of its aesthetic and durability qualities. The Angelo Galasso Saddle Stitch follows the original technique, which means it is done with only a few feet of thread at a time and must be made by hand. To create each stitch, the entire thread goes in and out the layers of fabric two times. The reason we choose the hand-sewn saddle stitch is because it creates goods that last much longer. In addition to using thicker thread with hand stitching, each stitch is made up of two strong, independent, stitches.
