The creation of Marie Macon and Anne-Laure Lesquoy, the French brand Macon & Lesquoy make beautiful embroidered patches and jewellery. Their collections are influenced by the trips they have made together. Unusual, funny, sometimes whimsical and always poetic, the brand blends the beautiful and the cool for a unique pop-culture style.

The Cannetilla jewellery-making technique used by Macon & Lesquoy requires a special metal thread, called bullion thread, to be very finely wound in a spiral, cut to the desired length, and then embroidered like beads. Macon & Lesquoy have a dedicated workshop in Pakistan where their embroidered Cannetilla jewellery is made. Sixty embroiderers work there exclusively, full time, under social and safety conditions imposed, enforced and regularly monitored by the two designers.

Macon & Lesquoy brooches are delicate and fragile so should be treated gently, and stored in their gift boxes when not being worn.

About The Creators

Pop-Culture Style

Created in 2009 by Marie Macon and Anne-Laure Lesquoy, the French brand bearing both their names creates embroidered accessories.

Keen on elegance and details, the two designers love outstanding skills and know how to find the best craftspeople..

Over the years, Macon & Lesquoy's collections have been tinted by the trips they have made together, which inspire them as much as they transport them.

From Russia to Japan, from Rwanda to Detroit and Pondichery, the colours and encounters give birth to beautiful ideas. Unusual, funny, sometimes whimsical and always poetic, the look Marie and Anne-Laure take at our world blends the beautiful and the cool for a unique pop-culture style.

Intricate and Delicate

Cannetilla Embroidery

Macon & Lesquoy's brooches are made using a special technique. The Cannetilla technique requires a special metal thread to be very finely wound in a spiral, cut at the desired length, and then embroidered like beads. This Cannetilla, or bullion thread, is made in Pakistan, where the metal industry is still flourishing.In Pakistan, the craftspeople are highly qualified. Macon & Lesquoy decided to start their own workshop with experienced foreman Muhmmad, to benefit from the outstanding skills available. Sixty embroiderers work there exclusively, full time, under social and safety conditions imposed, enforced and regularly monitored by the two designers.

Vibrant and Detailed

Machine Embroidery

Portugal, the European textile cradle, is renowned for its know-how in tailoring, accessories and beautiful finishes - such as embroidery.

Macon & Lesquoy have chosen to entrust the manufacture of their patches to a small, human-sized factory, which is reactive and very open to experimentation. This company has all the textile standards that Europe imposes and is regularly audited.

Brooches- Instructions for use

Hand-embroidered in Pakistan with a very ancient savoir-faire, Macon & Lesquoy fine metal embroideries are delicate.

They should not be machine-washed nor dry-cleaned. Avoid all contact with water, acids or alcohol. To keep your brooches shiny as long as possible, also avoid long exposures to heat and light.
Stash them away in their little black box!

A metal thread sticking out? Do not pull it! Cut it as short as possible. Do not bend.
Avoid friction (bag straps, seat belt…) that might damage or tear off your brooches.
Caution: the brooch may tear a hole in some delicate fabrics like silk or leather.

Machine-washed brooches mayday – because damage can happen to the best of us! Don’t panic, you can mend it:
Retrieve the two parts that peeled off (it is usually what happens), try to delicately flatten the embroidery between your fingers. Gently apply flexible neoprene glue on both parts with a brush. When the glue doesn’t stick to your finger anymore, stick the parts back together. Tighten firmly with your fingers so as not to crush the embroidery.

Finally, enjoy wearing your brooches, adding some true personal style to your outfit!

The origin of our brand’s name is simple as can be: it unites their two names.
So the idea is simple, but the spelling and pronunciation… not so much ! Macon&Lesquoy is pronounced “MACON (like the French city, no cedilla under the C) EH LESS KWA”, and not “Macon eh lay kwa”, or “Masson eh less kwat”, or “Mykon and less koi”…
Yes, we know it’s not easy!

The Cannetilla technique requires a special metal thread to be very finely wound in a spiral, cut at the desired length, and then embroidered like beads. Bead, gold and silver thread embroideries have developed from the 17th century in Asia and Europe.
