80 hands, thousands of hours, and infinite passion. Maybe you really should take a look at this one.

Jean-Francois Lesage is organising an exhibition of embroidery from 7th to 14th March, at the Kalakriti Art Gallery.

Established in Madras in 1993, Jean-Francois Lesage is an embroidery house that tries to keep up man's embroidery tradition with its hand-made products that are made using the combined skills of its French staff and its 120 local Madrasi Master embroiderers. Originally suppliers to Napoleon III, the Micholet, later, Lesage families have been embroidering since 1868.

Jean-Francois Lesage's workers express themselves through embroidery stitches and techniques that can be done only by hand, on material as varied as silk, linen, cotton, wool, velvet, leather, suede and embellish seats, curtains, blinds, drapes, borders, bedcovers, grand drapery borders and all textile items that can be used in a house.

Certain works of embroidery may require hundreds, or even thousands of hours, bringing together on a single frame a score of master embroiderers working in concert. Often, a magnifying glass alone can reveal the minute differences that mark the richness of these works produced by 40 hands.

Please contact Kalakriti Art Gallery at 6656-4466 for further details.
