Founded in Paris in 1995 by Valerie Schlumberger after spending ten years in Africa, her intention behind the brand is to create strong links between weavers, embroiders and artisans in Africa to the European market. The inclusion of embroidery into their textiles came about in 2012 when Valerie’s daughter, Ondine Saglio, joined CSAO and through embroidery workshops has trained over 150 women in the ancestral tradition. After learning the these skills the embroiderers, armed with patience and meticulousness, are empowered to release their creativity as well as enabling the women to provide for their families with regular income.
