Sewing & Fabric Scissors

Though credit is often given to Leonardo da Vinci, the origins of sewing and fabric scissors predate the revered artist's lifetime by many centuries. In fact, some of the earliest versions of sewing and fabric scissors were used by the ancient Egyptians as far back as 1500 B.C. By 100 A.D., Romans had improved upon the Egyptian design, creating the cross blade mechanism that is more in-line with the fabric scissors of today. It wasn’t until 1721 -- more than 200 years after da Vinci’s death -- that the earliest versions of sewing and fabric scissors were manufactured and mass-produced. By 1893, pinking shears, used largely for scalloping garments, were patented. Today, iterations like dressmaker shears and thread snippers are testaments to the advancement of sewing and fabric scissors.
