  • optional embroidery

    Embroidered logos.

    It is recommended that embroidered logos only be placed on the front or back of the Carmel high back or mid back headrest, due to the pronounced stitch work that runs down the center of the front and back of these chairs.  Embroidery cannot be placed on top of executive diamond stitching. This unique customization should be placed at least 1 inch from the top, bottom & sides of the chair.
