The Passing Down of Heirlooms: Wiss Scissors.

Wiss scissors are a simply wonderful heirloom treasure that can often be overlooked if you’re not careful!
The finest scissors in the world, Wiss scissors began in 1814 by a Swiss jeweler in New Jersey with the founding of J. Wiss & Sons Jewelers and have ever-since been a staple in sewing rooms across the world.

The scissors are simply lovely, coming in all shapes & sizes, and I was lucky enough to inherit those from my Grandmother’s collection. They are still sharp as can be and you’d never know their true age. I proudly display my collection in my IceMilk Aprons office, on my desk nestled in a wonderful wooden container.

I remember a past-issue of beloved Domino Magazine that featured Drew Barrymore with her collection of Wiss scissors proudly displayed on her desk.

I’m an old soul based in Atlanta, GA and mom of 3 with a deep love of all things from the past with a story to tell, on a mission to keep heirlooms around for another generation - whether it be a tradition, splattered family recipe, or historic home.
