Rolls-Royce has just unveiled the most detailed single embroidery that they have ever featured in one of their vehicles. The roofline embroidery portrays a Peregrine Falcon, the fastest bird out there, and was created in-house by a team of designers, craftspeople and engineers over the course of a month, requiring nearly 250,000 stitches.
The bird of prey, designed by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Design Team, is interpreted in photo-realistic complex detail amongst clouds on Wraith’s headlining.
“The design required hours of observation of a Peregrine Falcon – we needed to understand the musculature, the movement, the shading of the feathers,” said Josh Liles, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Bespoke Embroidery Specialist. “We created multiple iterations of the embroidery – the direction, length and spacing of the stitch can have a great impact on the final image. We purposefully shaped the beak and angled the eye to create a sense of aggression.”
The design is incorporated into the roof of the car’s blue leather interior and is also painted onto its piano finish fascia. Moreover, it has a bespoke clock in Baby Blue with guilloche-inspired detailing. On the outside, the car is finished in Bala Blue and Andalusian White with an Arctic White coachline which has been painted by hand using a fine squirrel hair paintbrush features the same wing motif in the line that runs across its length.
