Every single one of the hundreds of thousands (if not millions!) of logo’d garments Portlantis has produced since we started our business in 2005 has been stitched on a Tajima embroidery machine. Headquarted in Japan and now a global company, Tajima manufactured the first multi head automatic embroidery machine in 1964. 
 
This revolutionised what was essentially a manual process up to this point – and meant embroidered logos and designs became accessible for everyday use. In 1980 the first computerised embroidery machine was introduced, which led to greater benefits in production – benefitting both the garment decorator (us!) and also the customers (you!). Each machine has 15 needles - which means we can stitch up to 15 colours per design! At 1200 stitched per minute. 
 
This is just one of our Tajimas in action this morning:
