Cohana - Awaji Kawara Needle magnet and sharpener

The needle magnet and sharpener are called pottery tiles that are made by hand with a simple flower motif then baked with a glaze.  

Blessed with high-quality soil, Awaji Island in Hyogo Prefecture is one of Japan's leading producers of roof tiles. Using rich soil and craftsmanship, Cohana worked with Mr. Irakato of Awaji tiles to create a needle polisher with a flower motif. 

Awaji roof tiles date back to 1610 when roof tiles were made for castle construction.  

As this is a handmade product the colour of the glaze may be slightly different to the image, the beauty of a handmade product.

Approx product size: 40mm x 17mm
