Monogramming originated in the early 1800’s by the Royal families. Only the wealthiest families enjoyed the distinction of monogramming until the late 1800’s when then the middle classes started using monogramming as well. In today’s society putting monogramming on towels, shams, linens, coverlets, and dinner napkins is a modern twist on an old tradition.
When picking out linens or towels to have monogrammed make sure the monogram compliments the rest of your décor. There are so many different styles and colors when choosing monogram, be sure to ask lots of questions, so the monogram comes out exactly as you desire. http://www.pioneerlinens.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=designers.collection&productGroup_id=2404&parentGroup_id=1305& Now a days, sewing machines have the capability to monogram your family crest, estate logos, corporate logos, yacht logos, and pictures onto any fabric due to digitized stitching.
The three-letter monogram came about in the 20th century. The most traditional monogram is the single initial of your last name. The most popular monogram is the three-letter initial. The most popular three letter initial monogram is the first letter of the couple’s last name in the middle with the first name of the women on the left and the first letter of the man’s name on the right.
In today’s society pretty much any look goes for monogramming, whether you choose single letter, or three-letter monogram. Monogrammed items are a great gift to pass on from generation to generation. Having towels, shams, linens, duvet cover, or dinner napkins with a monogram really adds a little special extra touch to any room.
