Towel & Towel Cloth Designs

Towel machine embroidery designs are designed with a knockdown stitch as the first color change in each design. 

The first color change is a base layer (filled traced shape) for the whole main design and it is known as a knockdown stitch.  This goes underneath the main design to make the design more prominent and to hold down the fabric fibers. It prevents the fabric/ towel fibers from protruding through the main embroidery design. The knockdown stitch (base layer) is not a dense design and the stitches are spaced wide enough for the main design to go on top without making the complete embroidered design dense.
