Triangle Head Pins
Maison Sajou: the Revival of an Old Tradition.
An old, much-loved French make: ‘Maison Sajou’. The firm was founded in 1830 and quickly established itself as the best address in France (and beyond) for delightful small domestic articles (e.g. for sewing). The founder, Jacques-Simon Sajou, won numerous First Class medals in various world exhibitions of domestic craftsmanship in the 19th century. In modern times, Madame Crestin-Billlet, an admirer and keen collector of Sajou’s work, especially his needlework pattern booklets, started to work on a series of handicraft manuals based on his ideas and found to her surprise that the brand name ‘Sajou’ wasn't in use since the 1950s. So she took the logical step of reviving the name and the business; her ‘Sajou’ products do honour to the name ‘Maison Sajou’ and its tradition.

These French pins do not have a round head, but a triangle flat head. They are more suitable than traditional pins for use with a sewing machine, because they lie flat on the work piece. Thus, you can sew "over them", which means that you do not have to remove one pin after the other while sewing with your sewing machine. These pins are also referred to as patchwork pins.
