THE HERITAGE OF
THE EMBROIDERY ATELIER
MAISON LESAGE

The deft-fingered embroiderers of Maison Lesage are the guardians of an enduring, unique craft that has been passed down through the generations for almost 160 years, illuminating the Haute Couture collection and other designs made in Paris. Rhinestone, ribbons, beads and cabochons create exceptional patterns, trompe l’oeils, reflections, textures, illuminations, and hues that enhance the fabric and cut of garments from CHANEL’s own ateliers.

Signature of CHANEL’ style, the Lesage tweeds, showcased in every collection, are also produced by the Lesage studio weavers. Refined weaving of threads and ribbons made in a wide range of materials, it reinvent the fabric in line with Gabrielle Chanel’s heritage, reflecting Karl Lagerfeld’s creative inspirations.

CHANEL is the only House to have dedicated an entirely separate collection to the Métiers d'art in order to pay homage to the virtuoso skills of the Maisons d’art, a vital part of their creative story.
