Embroidered patches are usually thicker than woven patches, with strong lines and raised textures, giving them a very textured appearance because the embroidered patches are embroidered with thread on the fabric background. The thread is much thicker than yarns and with the fabric background, the embroidered thread would have the raised effect contrast with the non-embroidered fabric. Embroidered patches are currently the most commonly used clothing accessories. It is an important identification tool for military personnel and other military and police personnel. Due to its rich and colorful, high-quality logo display, and affordable cost, more and more people like to customize their own embroidered patches for clothing accessories.
