About us

Welcome to the Lekkerwear/ Rhodesiawassuper

Based in Canada we work from a store offering custom embroidery,apparel for local business, sports and personal,. The online store is a part time venture/hobby,something to the heart which specializes in Rhodesian/Southern Africa embroidered apparel
Originally from Shangani/Freda Mine in Rhodesia our family gapped it over here in 1980 after my dad was shot in a terr incident within the compound of Shangani mine.

About Embroidery All the emblems we offer can be viewed from the links down to the left under information and samples of emblems.
These emblems have been digitized into the art form of stitch file.
Digitizing is the process of converting artwork into a digital code that can be read by today's advanced embroidery machines. The digital image file is a starting point, but the "digitized" logo that we create will be in a format that only embroidery machines can use. This digital code provides the instructions to the embroidery machine's operating system which, in turn, tells the embroidery machine's frame how to sew the design.

Digitizing is both a technical and a creative process. It's much more than most people might imagine. A lot of people think their emblem design will just be 'scanned'. While the digitizer may begin with a scan or a graphic file, he or she has to tell the embroidery machine where to put each stitch, and what order to sew the design - including where to stop, trim the threads, and switch to a different colour. For example the Rhodesian coat of Arms, Rhodesian Air Force and other complex designs can take hours to create each into stitch file, along with a couple more once ran on the machine and tweaked. Digitizers would charge set-up fees on such emblems which run into the $$ hundreds.

Apparel prices on the site include your choice of emblem that can be selected from the dropdown box within that products description. I highly suggest when picking apparel is going with the rugby jerseys. These are custom made here in Canada and the quality is second to none. Many of our customers wardrobes along with mine have been taken up by these, perfect for leisure or a night on the town, these are real eye turners. You are getting what you pay for and these will last for many years.

Need something extra custom, no problem e-mail us with what you have in mind.

Free option. You can add your name etc on the right arm or on back of hats for free, just make mention of what you would like in the additional comments during the checkout process. Knowing the difference between embroidery and transfers. Embroidery in most cases should outlast the garment, we have had customers where a shirt was damaged over the years cut out the emblem and apply to another garment. Some of the emblems we offer have popped up on other sites being offered as "printed" these are iron on transfers that will crack, fade or even have inks run within the wash! Quality is what we sell and word of mouth is what promotes our products

Emblem sizes and stitch count. Some emblems with a full area/high stitch count are only available on certain apparel. For example bigger emblems on thinner apparel such as t-shirts will bag in after time thus should be ordered on thicker apparel. If you have a related emblem you would like added to the site, email a good quality colour picture along with what you are looking at putting it on. Emblems are embroidered with the finest isacord threads, backing and protective solvey. We stand behind all our products with a 100% guarantee. We have embroidered everything from socks to headwear and everything in-between "Including underwear" if you require something custom that is not on our site contact us. Please note.The emblem selection of the Flame lily or the Zimbabwe bird comes with the option of text underneath please state in the additional comments during the checkout process what you would like. If you select nothing you will receive Rhodesia underneath. The Rhodesian coat of arms comes with the text "Rhodesia" underneath if you do not want this please state so in the additional comments during the checkout process. I also suggest you first view the sample of the emblem you wish to order prior to placing any order/s.
