Charming handkerchief embroidered in Point de Beauvais.
Since the Renaissance, the handkerchief has been a useful object. For a long time it has been part of our culture. Depending on the delicacy of the workmanship, both the lace and the embroidery were visible signs of wealth and opulence. The handkerchief gradually became part of everyday dress, part of our legacy and is now passed down from generation to generation. Since 1903 Linge au Coeur has been sharing four generations of « savior faire », an unquestionable knowledge of house linens and rich archives to guide you in your choice of textiles, patterns and colours. The responsiveness and flexibility of the workshops offer a high quality bespoke service as well as a passion for catering to your daily needs using both classic and contemporary designs. Designers and embroiderers come together to create exclusive collections. The Dentelle de Calais-Caudry handkerchiefs are hand sewn and 35/35cm.
