These pattern charts are inspired by watercolour models, once known as “Berlin motifs”. A certain Wittich, an engraving merchant in Berlin, had the idea in 1805 to propose watercolour pattern charts. His publications were an immediate success and were exported all over the world. Monsieur Sajou picked up on this idea in the 1830s and the embroidery pattern charts could be found in many of his different publications. These pattern charts have repetitive floral motifs and can be adapted to the length required. These motifs were most often used as decorative bands on chairs and stools, accompanied by smooth velvet.
