Description

This charming Cohana Masu Pincushion with Kokura Textile and Shippo Glass Sewing Pins 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, a cotton fabric produced in the Northern Kyushu region since the early Edo period. It is known for its three-dimensional stripes with a rhythmic color pattern created by the use of many warp threads. Kokura textile production ceased during World War II. However, after several decades, weaver Noriko Tsuiki revived Kokura textile into a thriving industry creating stylish-but-traditional cloth. The Kokura textile brand “Kokura Shima Shima” was created with the revival. The brand is highly acclaimed for its simple and versatile textile designs that fit into modern lifestyles. Since its revival, the art has turned into a thriving industry creating stylish-but-traditional cloth.

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. Shippo is a type of cloisonne ware, or lacquered metalwork, and its name derives from the “seven treasures” of gold, silver, pearl, agate, crystal, coral, and lapis lazuli. Uniquely crafted “Shippo flakes” are incorporated into the glass head of the sewing pins, bringing an elevated touch to your craft.

  • As a characteristic of handmade products, the size and pattern of Tombo-dama glass beads differ.
  • The top of the sewing pin may come off if you pull too hard.
  • After use, wipe off sweat and grease to prevent rust.
  • Please note that using it for anything other than sewing may cause damage or injury.
  • Due to the characteristics of the fabric, a hole may be made in the fabric when a thick needle is pricked.
  • Be careful not to let the needle get inside the pin cushion.
  • This product is for needles and pins only. Please do not use it for other purposes.
  • The Masu wooden box is made of natural wood, so there may be differences in color, grain, and knots. Please enjoy them as the texture of natural materials.
  • Storage in high temperature and high humidity, direct sunlight, or drying out may cause cracking or mold.
  • The wooden base may get sticky due to the resin of the hinoki. Wipe it off with alcohol to remove the stickiness.
