Fact of the blog: The name "sequin" originates from the Venetian colloquial noun zecchino (Venetian pronunciation: [tseˈkino]), meaning a Venetian Ducat coin, rendered into French as sequin [səkɛ̃]. The Ducat stopped being minted after the Napoleonic invasion of Italy, and the name sequin was falling out of use in it’s original sense. It was then that the name was taken up in France to designate what it means today. The 19th century sequins were made of shiny metal.
