An embroidery stitch is one of the many different styles of stitches that are used to decorate a fabric.

Embroidery can be dated back to 30,000 BC. (in an archaeological find, fossilized remains of heavily hand-stitched and decorated clothing were found).

If the embroidery material is thicker than the shirt fabric, the embroidery thread will need a stronger base, otherwise the shirt could tear. Basically, embroidery needs a base that is as thick, or thicker, than itself.
