This project, the last in the series of six, reflects on the relaunch of Maison Sajou in Versailles in 2005.
The company having become obsolete, Frédérique Crestin-Billet decided to revive the Sajou brand and registered the name in November 2004. The website opened in May 2005. Author of numerous books, notably on embroidery and collectibles, she had a small office in Versailles, just next to the Château, where the company is still based, watched over by the equestrian statue of Louis XIV. It was never her intention to claim succession of Maison Sajou which is why she invented the formula “NRP”, in French “nom repris par” (name resumed by). This has no legal value but is just a touch of humour. Among all the different ways that Sajou has been written over the years, she chose the one on the tapestry albums printed in colour. As for the orange and blue emblematic colours of the brand, this was really just a coincidence: these are the colours of an old stock of cardboard available when she asked a box maker to make my first boxes at the lowest possible price.
This cross stitch pattern 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.
It's printed in colours on a A3 format and presented in a Sajou folder.
Size of motif: 90 x 90 points.
