Punch needle is a versatile yet simple embroidery technique which can be used for creating unique designs and modern products on a great number of our fabrics. The technique was originally developed in the USA from the rug hooking technique.

The punch needle is a hollow decorative stitching needle with which the thread is embroidered onto the fabric from the top. This creates loops on the back side, in which the height of the loop is determined by the height of the needle.
The terms “front side” and “back side” are not used with this technique, since both sides can be used as the front side and combined with one another. With the punch needle, one works on the “flat side,” while the “loop side” forms on the part side. The flat side is much clearer and more detailed in image. The loop side, on the other hand, is softer yet also more robust.

The punch needle technique ranges from thick punch needle with wool yarns to very fine punch needles with embroidery threads. As a result, the a wide variety of fabrics from our product range can be used for this technique.
