For this purpose the Leistl, or pattern, is glued on with special glue made from rye and water. The customer’s desired embroidery pattern is drawn on with gummi arabicum. The knee length Lederhosen are different from the short Lederhosen in that the former uses a white, lock-stitch embroidery pattern while the short Lederhosen usually have a normal embroidery stitch in green thread and a pattern of oak, grape, or ivy leaves. It then takes anywhere from 10 to 35 hours to embroider the Lederhosen. The time necessary depends upon the pattern selected.
