Using the ancient embroidery technique known as Cannetilla, these wearable works of art are made with bead, gold and silver thread. This ancient technique, that has traditionally been used to create military badges, requires a special metal thread to be very finely wound in a spiral, cut at the desired length, and then embroidered like beads. Cannetilla, or bullion thread, is made in Pakistan, where the metal industry is still flourishing.
Created in 2009 by friends Marie Macon and Anne-Laure Lesquoy, the French brand bearing both their names offers embroidered accessories inspired by travel with a cunning blend of softness and cheek.
