About Us

Simply Scissors was founded in 1991, the current owner Sarah Rakestraw has continued to run the company successfully since 2011. Sarah heads up a small but very efficient team who are available to answer any queries that you may have and aim to get your goods out quickly and safely.

As the name Simply Scissors suggests we specialise in the distribution of scissors, Chatelaines and Victorian style needlework tools, some are traditional in design and date back several hundred years and some are from the last 20 years but with a Victorian flavour. Our products are all unique and desirable. They make excellent and beautiful gifts for the needle worker and can be considered as “tomorrow’s heirloom”.

We distribute our products worldwide
