This charming pincushion is characterized by a compact, round shape, inspired by a nut in the forest. Craftsmen at Nakauchi, a button manufacturer established in 1914 in Nara, carve the wooden base by hand with great skill. The fragrant wood is sourced from hinoki cypress from the Kii Mountains south of Osaka.

The fabric of the pincushion is a Banshu textiles, produced in the northern Harima region of Hyogo Prefecture. Banshu woven fabrics are distinguished by their natural texture, rich colors, and smoothness to the touch. Saito & Textiles, from whom we source the cushion, strive to craft eco-friendly products and makes use of cloth remnants for these small pincushions so that waste is minimized. Pins slide easily into the Cypress Pincushion and its stuffing is rust-resistant. The pin cushion can also be strung as a pendant to make a cute accessory or for easy portability.

Bring a playful nature to your project when using these sewing pins topped with colorful glass beads. Each set comes in three different patterns of swirls, marbles, and flowers in soft colors. Ohajiki is a Japanese classic children's toy made from coin-shaped glass beads and is said to be carried as an amulet to keep up away evil spirits. The artisans at Plants Bead Works Tokyo designed these exquisite Ohajiki Sewing Pins to bring a childlike sense of wonder and joy to any sewing project.  Each needle is handmade and unique

The durable steel-and-nickel needle of the pin is manufactured in Hiroshima, a city with a 300-year history of high-quality needle production. Rigorus quality control ensures that pins are of uniform thickness and pierce cloth with ease.
