It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of our Sajou Paris store.
Unfortunately, the current crisis means it is no longer viable to continue.
We are going to step up our initiatives on our website to offer you new experiences and strengthen the close ties we have always had with you.
In better days, we are sure that we will meet again, in another place, in another way.

Thank you for all the wonderful moments we shared in our store which was, thanks to you, a super experience. 

We invite you to find us at our corner at Le Bon Marché (shop 2, 1st floor)
And of course, on our site, where you can order 24/7, 
with our new ‘click and collect’ service at Versailles.


The history of Sajou is peppered with a series of amusing encounters and anecdotes.
Installing the shop in the rue de Caire is one of these. 
In fact, Frédérique Crestin-Billet was not looking to open a store –
it was proposed by one of the last haberdashery wholesalers in the area who wanted to reduce his activities.
Having spent the past 50 years in the premises, he had his heart set on it remaining a haberdashery.
Things went quickly from there: work started in July and the store was opened on the 21st September 2013.

The decoration is based on our small showroom in Versailles: 
orange and blue cement tiles combined with wood.
A few antique cabinets were sanded down and repaired to blend
with our re-edition haberdashery furniture.

The installation in the Sentier district of Paris is a return to the roots of Sajou
because the original office was for a long time in the neighbouring rue Rambuteau
and then in Boulevard Sébastopol.

This amusing district was built during the Egyptian expedition vigorously led by Bonaparte between 1798 and 1801,
which is reflected by the names of the streets - Caire, Aboukir, Alexandrie.
Besides the military aspect of the expedition, the goal was also scientific and cultural.
It was the start of a fascination for the Orient in general which was very fashionable in Europe
for many years to come.

The Sentier was a bustling district of the clothing industry
and considered as the capital of textile and haberdashery in Paris.
This is now changing with the arrival of many IT and digital start-ups in the area.
Among this modern universe, The Sajou Paris store finds itself as a symbol of tradition of the area, 
whilst being part of the revival of quality products made in France.

Cette boutique est merveilleuse ! Une sorte de caverne d'Ali-Baba pour brodeuses et couturières. Tout y est d'un goût exquis. Les produits sont d'une qualité exceptionnelle et, ce qui ne gâche rien, fabriqués en France. Moi qui habite Toulouse, je prévois toujours deux ou trois heures à passer chez Sajou à chaque fois (trop rare) que je monte à Paris.
