Retors du Nord Sajou
Choosing a name for our embroidery floss when we created it in 2009 was a delicate affair. The name had to reflect the product without being too complicated. As usual in this type of case, I plunged into my collection of vintage haberdashery and came up with the name "retors". In French, this is a synonym of "mouliné", a term already used by DMC, meaning twisted. As it is made in the region known as "Nord", the name became an evidence. After relatively few years of existance, this thread is more and more appreciated and the name has been adopted by embroiderers as if it has always existed.Our Museums and Heritage collection uses Retors du Nord embroidery floss.
