Wooden dressmaker's tape measure 

Obviously, our wooden tape measures do not automatically retract with the push of a button! You have to rewind them with the little handle on the top. Modernity is not the idea of these re-editions, but to find the charm of vintage sewing items. These tape measures were inspired by those found in bygone days in souvenir shops. They were often made of boxwood and decorated with the names of spa towns, tourist attractions and famous monuments.

You can find out more about the diversity of shapes and materials in my book, Haberdasheries of Yesteryear, where there are numerous pages devoted to these whimsical little objects.
