    TRANSMITTING A KNOWLEDGE

    Fully aware of the importance that her passion should be passed on, Pascale Duchénoy also participates in awarding diplomas for the State Arts trade.

    THE BEAUVAIS STITCH

    The House broadens its know-how by developing an embroidery workshop using the Point de Beauvais stitch. This crochet chain stitch, typical of the 18th century styles, requires a long period of apprenticeship and a rare ability. Fetish technique of the Jules Zéau house, it was to bring about its international recognition. With more than 10 000 models accumulated over the years, the heritage of point de Beauvais sketches by the Linge au Coeur House is inestimable.
