This cross stitch kit corresponds to the period from 1882 to 1934 when Maison Sajou was located 74 boulevard Sébastopol, after more than 30 years in the rue Rambuteau (subject of the third cross stitch pattern chart). The company is directed by Claude Cabin’s son and in 1885 he is joined by his son in law, Georges Lefèvre.
The district is lively with a large part of the businesses being in textile and haberdashery. The writer, Léon-Paul Fargue (1876-1947) evoked his youth in Le Piéton de Paris: “We browsed through the boulevard like an album. We knew all the all the shops, the underwear at Cour Batave, the furniture of the Petits Agneaux, the Sajou embroiderers, the Suzor bobbins…” Here we find a Sajou logo inspired by the one on the large albums of whitework and filet lace. This cross stitch kit is part of a series of six which traces the history of Sajou from 1842 through the relaunch in 2005. Part of the Museums and Heritage collection, it's derived from the large poster chart dedicated to the history of Maison Sajou. Size of motif: 90 x 90 points. This embroidery kit contains:
- one Sajou blue 12 count linenpiece 20 x 20cm,
- two Retors du Nord embroidery floss n°2234 and n°2876, - a colourfull pattern chart printed on a A3 format. Presented in a transparent sachet with a Sajou header. The pattern chart is also available here. Special letter tariff for this product.
