*The small dots tapestry of St Cyr is intimately linked to a character in the history of France as well as to particular heritage sites.
It is indeed Madame de Maintenon, wife of Louis XIV, who attached her name to this decorative art.
This tapestry stitch was taught to young noble girls of her time. For their education Madame de Maintenon asked the king to finance a school which after a few years in Choisy le Roi was definitively installed in Saint Cyr, a small village located near Versailles.
