A Lovely Sajou pattern chart showing the history of the Maison Sajou brand.
The chart traces the origons of the Sajou brand from the creation of the brand by Jaques Simon Sajou in the 19th century, through to the relaunch in 2005. There are motifs of the iconic products that make up the brand, from the hand paired scissors, through to thread cards and the re editions of Sajou cross stitch albums to name a few.
The chart is presented as a large poster measuring 68 x 80 cm and is printed in matt so you can write any references that you may need. The back of the poster has all the working explanations for the chart along with interesting facts regarding the history of Maison Sajou and it's revival.
The size of the finished motif is 345 x 342 points, and the embroidery represents 135 hours work.
If working the chart you will need 70 cm square of Sajou Blue linen, and 14 cm square of pale pink and cyclamen linen, along with the treads to work the embroidery. You will also need 6 nickle plated and 6 black 8 mm press studs, 12 white 8 mm buttons, 22 glass head pins and 6 x 12 cm of Sajou Couture Collection Ribbons.
I also stock the gift box version of this chart. A complete kit, with everything you need to compete the embroidery, presented in a lovely Sajou box. Perfect for keeping the project organised as you work, please see my other listings.
Some of you will already be collectors of Sajou and be more than aware of this extraordinary French brand. Sajou produce haberdashery items made in France to the highest standards (in some cases even produced on the original old machinery). Perfect for gifts and collectors, and for those of you unable to resist a quality that is seldom found in today's mass produced haberdashery products.
Sajou was created in 1828 by Jaques- Simon Sajou, selling haberdashery for embroidery, tapestry, lace, crochet and weaving. His pattern albums are sought after to this day by collectors worldwide. In 2005 the Sajou brand was purchased and revived by avid collector; Frederique Crestin- Billet. Many of the old designs have been faithfully reproduced and there are some new designs that have been added in the Sajou style.
