Broderies Vermont was founded in 1956 and modernized the industry with new techniques such as the chenille effects used by Chanel to edge her tweed suits. Below, a sample of their baroque-style embroidery with acanthus leaves embroidered in relief in gold thread and colored resin stones on clusters of old gold and bronze beads.
