In 1828, Jacques-Simon Sajou set up a business in Paris selling products for embroidery, tapestry, lacemaking, weaving and crochet. The brand, now with a rich history, lasted until 1954. It then lay dormant for nearly 50 years until it was revived in 2005 by Frederique Crestin-Billet, a collector of vintage sewing items.

Frederique was mindful to keep the original packaging design strong, as well as the high-quality and reputation of the former Sajou company. The beautiful products are mainly made in France and come full of flair and function as well as decades of tradition and craft expertise.
