The current vogue for embroidery, visible across catwalks worldwide and the focus of an exhibition at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, means de Gournay have chosen an opportune moment to share some of our favourite imagery of our hand embroidery technique.
Prized historically for its exquisite artistry, embroidery still retains a reputation as the height of luxury within interiors. de Gournay’s modern-day application of the technique brings a delicate depth to details such as flower petals, fish scales and bird feathers. As effective in abundance as it is when used more simply as subtle accents within motifs, the hand embroidery adds additional opulence and textural interest to our silk wallpapers.

Unlike companies that offer manufactured embroidery, de Gournay artists hand sew the silk threads for an exceptional level of detail and the highest possible quality that is only achievable by hand.
