It was the era of arts and crafts, and J. Sagarra decided to leave the trade of his father (who was a hatter) to become a cabinetmaker, and by doing so started our company, at Calle de la Palla 35, within the walls of Barcelona.
The earliest written document in the possession of the family behind the company. It is the rental contract for the premises at Calle de la Palla, 35. They made wooden houses, puzzles, letters, and all types of handicrafts there.
The Barcelona International Exposition. Josep Sagarra was a total visionary, and took advantage of the event to seek new challenges and raise the product's profile. Since then it has been a milestone in the company's outward expansion. It left the guild structure (centred in the Gothic Quarter) and aimed to bring the product to a wider clientele.
JAUME SAGARRA MIRÓ
He was the youngest of seven brothers and started in the trade as their apprentice. Unfortunately, all his brothers died young, and he had to take the reins of the business at a very young age. "Fretsawyer "
4-11-1968 he married Maria Diéz Garcia. Two families with a great deal of history came together. Joan and Miquel Díez, Maria's grandfather and father respectively, were great painters, and they also made signs at Calle de la Palla number 8 (which were at that time painted behind glass). This marriage led to a combination of the knowledge of two trades: fret sawing and painting, giving the business a unique touch.
the company became a limited company.
with the international perspective that runs in the family, J. Sagarra began the transition from a shop (located at Calle de la Palla 35) to a factory (at Calle Parlament 55), to take the product forward and steer it towards large signs for facades, channel letters with a structure, making large signs the company's flagship. "The greatest satisfaction I get from the signs I make is not that the client pays me for them, but instead what enables me to transform the company" Jaume Sagarra Fenech.
