Worshipful Company of Broderers
The Worshipful Company of Broderers is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. Broderers were workers in embroidery; the organization of Broderers existed in at least 1376, and was officially incorporated by a Royal Charter in 1561. As the craft of embroidery has lost its importance as a trade, the Company has become less of a trade association for Broderers. Instead, the Company is now, as are most Livery Companies, a charitable foundation.
The Company is the forty-eighth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is Omnia Desuper, Latin for All From Above.
