Woad, Isatis Tinctoria, also known as glastum, has been cultivated for centuries in England, Germany and France.
The town of Coventry in England was famous for their colourfast blue ­­­­fabric and the origin of the phrase “as true as Coventry blue”, often shortened to “true blue”, signifying loyal and unwavering.
The production of woad was so important in the 16th century that Queen Elizabeth I issued a “Proclamation against the growing of woade” on 14th October 1585, to encourage the growth of cereals.
This chart is taken from our spectacular pattern dedicated to Tinctorial Plants in the “Museums and Heritage” collection.

It is embroidered in cross-stitch over two threads of fabric using two strands of Retors du Nord.
Easy and amusing, it is perfect for novices.
The kit contains:
- a piece of cyclamen-coloured linen fabric,
- a card of Retors du Nord embroidery floss with the four colours necessary,
- a cardboard disc and a piece of wadding,
- a round tin and a decorative sticker,
- a pattern chart with all explanations for mounting.

Size of the box: height 4cm - diameter 7.3cm.
Presented in a cardboard Sajou box.
Mounting instructions are included in the kit, but you can also find them in "Madame Sajou's Diary".
