Artisans at Tomoi Co., Ltd. in Nara craft these exquisite flower-shaped pushpins using genuine mother-of-pearl, perfect for affixing pictures and memos to bulletin boards, walls, and workspaces.

Tiny flowers are cut from the inner shell of Akoya pearl oysters, which are then dyed in yellow, pin, blue, and green.
White pushpins are unpigmented to showcase the moon-like luminescence of the Akoya shell.
These shell flowers are affixed to sharp made-in-Hiroshima pins.

All colors have a natural iridescence that adds a sparkle to any space.

Tomoi was founded here in 1913.

Their technology, acquired through years of experience in the manufacturing of shell buttons, has won the trust of the global fashion industry.

Handling Precautions

  • Cork board Gypsum board Please use for thin veneer walls or transparent cutting mats for dressmaking. If you use it on wood or hard materials, it will be a burden and the shell buttons may crack, the needles may break, or the parts may come off.
  • Because it is a slender needle, the needle may break if you push it gently or apply excessive force.
  • As the needles change over time, the color becomes darker and the texture increases as they are used.
  • Shell buttons vary in thickness and warpage, so the needles may appear distorted.
  • Since the shell button is a natural material, there are individual differences in the shape and texture of the color surface. Please enjoy it as a texture.
  • Do not place in a hot place.
  • The needle tip is sharp and dangerous, so be careful when handling lost needles.
  • Keep out of reach of infants.
