The Bégonia d'Or, as an embroidery atelier specialised in golden embroidery, was founded in 1995 as a continuation of this military history.
Sylvie Deschamps, the only Maître d'art of golden embroidery of France is the head of this atelier. She and her two associates (Rouhaud Marlène and Tarrade Thierry) create unique pieces, complete orders and restore religious or secular objects (from the 15th to the 20th century). Also, the three of these skilled embroiderers ensure the transmission of their precious and old savoir-faire.
The rigorous selection of the materials (all made in France) guarantees a perfect inalterability in the long term.
Here are the four main activities of the Bégonia d'Or :
The sublimation and ennoblement of artworks with golden embroidery for the designers, contemporary artists, architects and interior designers, perfumers, watchmakers, fashion designers and stylists, jewellers, leather workers, shoemakers...
The restoration and duplication of liturgical and secular old embroidery for the public sector, the army, associations, museums, privates...
The creation of to order embroidered artworks - logos, company gifts, coat of arms, blazons, monogram - and of custom unique pieces (available at the atelier & on our e-shop)
