MAGNETIC NEEDLE REST
This flower shaped Awaji Kawara Magnetic Needle Rest with Needle Polisher is created with the Awaji's rich soil and the skilled artisans at Irakato. Awaji Island in Hyogo Prefecture, blessed with good soil, is a renowned center of manufacturing Kawara (Japanese traditional roof tiles). The origin of Awaji Kawara dates back to 1610 when the first Kawara roof tiles were made for Japanese castles. Each piece of ware may be different, even if the same technique is used, due to the climate, the clay, and the natural minerals in the glaze. Please enjoy the uniqueness of each piece.

Never lose a favorite needle or pin again: a magnet is added to the inside the Kawara ceramic making it a handy sewing accessory. Along the side of the ceramic, a needle polisher is built in. To polish the needle, slowly insert the needle tip into the hole on the side and slowly pull the needle out while pushing up on the bottom part. Polishing will improve the needle's path through the cloth.

How to use the needle polisher:
1. Slowly insert a needle from the tip into the hole on the side and pull the needle out. Please be careful of the needle tip.
2. For better polishing, after inserting the needle, move it back and forth while pushing up on the logo mark on the bottom also rotate the needle several times to polish the entire surface.
3. In case abrasive dust adheres to the needle, wipe it off with a cloth before using the needle.
