Les Dix Doigts

Les Dix Doigts is an association of women from the impoverished Jacmel Valley region of Haiti. Together these women practice the age-old tradition of Richelieu embroidery—a richly textured needlework of intricate design and rare beauty handed down from nuns to the women of Haiti over a century ago. Today, with their handiwork, the women of Les Dix Doigts generate a sustainable income for their families and their community—a testament to their commitment and courage. With beauty and grace, they are sewing the seeds of a better future through the artistry of the past.
