This small project to embroider in cross stitch evokes the beginnings of Maison Sajou situated in rue Michel Le Comte in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris from 1842 to 1845.
Originating from Sens (Yonne), Jacques-Simon Sajou started up a first small workshop situated in the Ile de la Cité (Paris). He moved around quite a bit before installing himself from 1842 to 1845 in rue Michel-le-Comte in the 3rd arrondissement. This is an interpretation of the logo which can be found on the
blue “miniature” albums. These albums were the start of Frédérique Crestin-Billet's affection for Sajou over 30 years ago.
And did you know that sajou or sapajou is French for the capuchin monkey originating from South America?
In the 19th century, red was the colour most often used for embroidering point de marque – a cross stitch often used for marking household linen. As for the blue, this is one of Maison Sajou’s favourite colours.
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.
We recommend you to embroider these motif on our Sajou blue
12 count linen with Retors du Nord embroidery floss 2030 and n°2876.
