Tulip Needles + Pins

Tulip needles and pins are made in Hiroshima, Japan, a region which has been manufacturing needles and pins for over 300 years. Through a process consisting of over 30 steps, using traditional needle-making techniques that have been handed down through generations of skilled Tulip needle craftsmen, each of whom has an almost stubborn obsession with quality. At the same time, while making full use of the “cutting, grinding and polishing” technology used in Tulip's needle manufacturing that they have accumulated through the years, they are also constantly striving to achieve new technical innovations in order to develop and produce products that are of the highest quality. All come beautifully packaged in textured paper and stored within a glass tube topped with cork.
