Maison Sajou

Quality Haberdashery Made In France

Sajou of France

I am thrilled to introduce you to an exquisite line we have recently brought to the studio. Sajou is a company from France which produces the most beautiful sewing notions, accessories, stitchery kits and fabrics. The original history of Maison Sajou, begins in the 19th century with Jacques-Simon Sajou, but sadly,eventually disappears in 1954.The brand has since been revived in 2005 by Frederique Crestin-Billet. You can read more about the fascinating history of this company on the Sajou blog. Here's a little history of the most recent incarnation of the Sajou brand (source: Sajou.fr):

"Maison Sajou is famous for the quality of their haberdashery, embroidery and textile product.
Since the relaunch in 2005, Sajou has always put the emphasis on
products Made in France. Sajou is not a reseller of haberdashery goods:
all the products are created by Frédérique Crestin-Billet."

Meet Frederique Crestin-Billet

Frederique started collecting vintage haberdashery at a very young age, especially colour charts, thread boxes and the famous little Sajou albums. Frederique relaunched the historical brand and the Sajou webstore opened the 25th May 2005 at a time when online haberdashery sales were in the pioneer stage. The success was immediate, notably abroad in Japan, USA and all across Europe.

From the start, Frederique put the emphasis on French-made goods, long before local sourcing was as popular as it is today."

The Brand

Embroidery and dressmaking scissors, wooden sewing items, the Museums and Heritage collection of cross stitch projects, the famous Sajou albums, ribbons, laces, tapestry models, etc.

Maison Sajou has recently launched a collection of fabrics and Jouy print cottons. There is also a complete range of Fil Au Chinois sewing and lace threads as well as their specialist threads for leather work.

Take The Tour

The Sajou storefront is in Versailles, France, and having had a few friends who were lucky enough to visit, I've heard first hand accounts that it is a magical treasure trove of sewing delights.Trip to France anyone?
