Masu Pincushion with Kokura Textile and Shippo Glass Sewing Pins
A beautiful addition to a crafters' sewing collection. This charming set includes a handcrafted masu-box pincushion with Kokura Textile and three unique pins crafted in the Shippo ("Seven Treasures") method.
Masu boxes were originally used to measure rice, and later came into use holding sake glasses. This fragrant Japanese cypress masu box encases a pincushion made of Kokura textile. Known for its three-dimensional stripes with a rhythmic colour pattern created by the use of many warp threads.
The glass heads of these sturdy pins were developed by Nail Salon Ai-rish and Kato Shippo Works to capture the beauty of traditional Aichi Shippo ware. Uniquely crafted "Shippo flakes" are incorporated into the glass head of the sewing pins, bringing an elevated touch to your craft.
