Back in September 2009, whilst working on the new collection, the Dunhill design team came to visit the Hand & Lock Studio.
The Blazer Badge, designed by Hand & Lock, also looked deep into Dunhill’s heratige and brought back an old logo, using it as an integral part of the tribute. The design used is the original Alfred Dunhill monogram logo; hand embroidered and set in an oak leaf wreath.
These were embroidered in traditional purl and silks and were given a contemporary edge with the use of hand dyed black and gun metal. This combined with the more traditional techniques gave Dunhill something completely new and individual. Hand & Lock produced all hand embroidered blazer badges, stars and ‘single’ gorgets inspired by military badges Dunhill design team saw during their visit of the Studio in Central London.

ABOUT HAND & LOCK
Hand & Lock is an embroidery company that is a fusion of two, great, long established, embroidery businesses. In 2001 these two, extraordinary companies; S. Lock and M. Hand, merged to form Hand & Lock. And more recently in 2003, joined with MBA Costumes bringing all the elements of military, fashion and couture, and entertainment together under one roof. The Hand & Lock brand was thus created.
Hand & Lock's commitment to produce only the highest quality hand embroidered products ensures that the company maintains its place as the leading supplier of all types of embroidery. Hand crafted work will always give a touch of quality to any garment. Investment in new technology to the business will provide a faster design service and a better response to customer enquiries. All of which leads Hand & Lock confidently into the 21st century, whilst preserving all that is the best of its proud history.
