This small kit 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 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 chartdedicated to the history of Maison Sajou. Size of motif: 90 x 90 points. This embroidery kit contains :
- one natural 12 count linen piece 20 x 20cm,
- two Retors du Nord embroidery floss n°2030 and n°2876,
- a full-colour 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.
