Creating Embroidery with Historical Inspiration

Joséphine de Beauharnais was one of the most important patrons of the arts. After buying the Château de Malmaison, she hired Pierre-Joseph Redouté to paint the flowers of her garden. Her husband was nothing less than Napoleon Bonaparte.

Those drawings are until today a great source of inspiration for all of us!

The Botanic Collection is inspired by some of Redouté flowers. Visit my shop to discover more!
