Backings & toppings for all purposes
In addition to our embroidery threads, Madeira also offers a wide range of backings and toppings sourced from suppliers that use the most environmentally sound production processes and raw materials. Our eco-friendly backings feature near zero levels of formaldehyde to formaldehyde free, while preserving the properties critical to efficient and high-quality embroidery processes.
Madeira’s extensive range of stabilisers and toppings will help you to achieve optimum results across all embroidery styles and techniques. But how do you know which backing to use on your next project when there are so many to choose from?
The most important factor when choosing a stabiliser is the type of fabric being embroidered, followed by the style and stitch count of the embroidery. The stability or stretch of the fabric will determine the amount of additional stability required, remember to use a maximum of three layers or switch to a heavier backing. For more specialised work, fusible, self-adhesive peel away backings, heat and water soluble toppings and heat seal film complete the range.
