Before the scissors as we know were invented, people used what was called « forces ». Large forces, such as those used to mow the coton sheets, small forces, used by seamstresses and dressmakers, or even « forcettes », intended for toiletry. In the 18th century Salons, embroidery and tapestry became a popular activity. Thus, the scissors,essential instrument of needlework, have inspired artists-ciseliers who gave this tool the rise of a thousand variations.
