The Metropolitan Paris embroidery pattern is the perfect design for Paris enthusiasts. The design is inspired by Metro Dauphine in the majestic 16th area of Paris. It was built in the late 1890’s as a station on line 2, which makes it one of the first metro stations in the city.

The station opened 19 July 1900. There are currently eighty-six of the earliest metro stations that are still standing in Paris today. Some of them active such as the Metro Dauphine, while others have been abandoned since decades. When Charles was a teenager in the capital, it was a known game to look for the abandoned underground stations. As he says, there is a whole world beneath the city that we only know a fraction about!

Paris was one of the first cities in Europe to construct such an advanced underground railway system and the planning began already in the mid 19th century. Just as many of the other older stations, Metro Dauphine was inspired by Art Noveau. Imagine all the Parisians that have walked out of this magnificent entrance through the years! That if something gives envy to get stitching!

What is included with the Metropolitan Paris embroidery pattern?

This design fits perfectly in a 15cm (6″) diameter hoop. However, there are no limits as to how you can display your finished embroidered artwork. Either you are able to keep it in the hoop for framing, or stretch it onto a canvas. Considering the rich history of the design as well as the graphical and modern look of the pattern, you will enjoy a unique artwork for your home or as a personal gift to a loved one.

To capture the Art Noveau structures, we recommend to use the back stitch technique for all contours. To add some textural contrast, we’ve added some miniature french knots. Small french knots are ideal to embody mini florals. In the finer areas of Paris you often see gorgeous floral arrangements around the iconic stations.
