Story

These exquisite sewing pins feature a tombo-dama glass bead on the head. Tombo-dama beads are a Japanese traditional craft, produced in a variety of colors and unique designs by master craftsmen. Tombo-dama literally means "dragonfly's eye" because these beautiful glass beads resemble the mysterious eyes of dragonflies.

The glassmaking techniques used to craft the beads are a type of millefiori, or "thousand flowers," and can be traced back to the Nara period (710-794 A.D.). Trade with Europe and Asia over the centuries also introduced many new techniques and designs to this traditional art. Glass bars are heated in the flame of a burner, carefully shaped and extruded, then attached to the pin. Pins measure approimately 5mm in diameter at the head and are produced lovingly by hand at Kinari Glassworks in Osaka. Each pin is entirely unique with its own distinct charm, like a flower.

Pins are supple yet durable, and manufactured in Hiroshima, a city with a 300-year history of high-quality needle production. Rigorous quality control ensures unified thickness and length of pins, and their ability to pierce cloth with ease.

Assorted 3-piece set
3 assorted needles from various types.

プレゼントにも最適❗

この度は素敵な商品をありがとうございました。
広告を見て、初めての注文にワクワクドキドキしながら手続きさせて頂きました。届いたまち針に、思わず「カワイイ〜っ😆❤️」と叫んでしまいました。手芸好きな友人と娘にはプレゼントとして、そして私の分として3セット注文しました。色・模様等はおまかせとのことでしたが、どれも素敵だったので、プレゼントしたくなくなりましたが、涙を飲んで贈らせて頂きました。友人・娘ともにとっても喜んでくれました。
裁縫道具の中にキラリと光る自分好みのものがあると、お裁縫も楽しくなりますね。これから、少しずつ集めていきたいと思います。
注文は、年末の忙しい時期であったにもかかわらず、お早い対応をありがとうございました。これからもお世話になります。よろしくお願い致します。
