These embroidery scissors are exclusive Maison Sajou models, designed by Frédérique Crestin-Billet. Most of them are inspired by the style of Charles X (1820-1830) which, in France, was a period known for the refinement of their objects. Some of the most beautiful collectible sewing sets date from this era. Our embroidery scissor imitating beautiful natural materials once used for making small objects, are made from cellulose acetate, a material obtained from wood pulp and cotton bolls. From these modest beginnings it is possible to obtain practically perfect imitations of tortoiseshell, mother of pearl, veined ivory and even precious stones such as onyx. Despite their delicate appearance, these embroidery scissors are solid and are not made to remain in a display case. The more you use them, the more they will "mould to your hand" and you will never let them go. The only thing that will damage them is if you drop them on their point.
