Thread cards & organisers

Thread cards and organisers are one of Maison Sajou’s specialities. Most were inspired by the personal collection belonging to Frédérique Crestin-Billet. In fact, since they were launched in 2005 Maison Sajou has revived the interest and use of thread cards.

Up until the 1850’s, sewing thread was sold in skeins which arrived at the wholesalers in crates or barrels. Gradually it was presented on cards or small balls placed in cardboard boxes. These boxes were decorated with beautiful labels indicating the thread brand. This evolution came at a time of development in the retail trade, which was a natural consequence of industrial development. Thread brands became more abundant and the images more diverse and appealing.
