Some of you will already be collectors of Sajou & be more than aware of this extraordinary French brand. Sajou produce haberdashery items made in France to the highest standards (in some cases even produced on the original old machinery). Perfect for gifts & collectors, & for those of you unable to resist a quality that is seldom found in today’s mass produced haberdashery products. Sajou was created in 1828 by Jaques- Simon Sajou, selling haberdashery for embroidery, tapestry, lace, crochet & weaving. His pattern albums are sought after to this day by collectors worldwide. in 2005 the Sajou brand was purchased & revived by avid collector; Frederique Crestin- Billet. Many of the old designs have been faithfully reproduced & there are some new designs that have been added in the Sajou style.
