The pins are made by hand by an artist in Kyoto who specializes only in making miniature pins. We absolutely love that this is a thing...that someone gets to spend their days not only making miniatures, but only those that are made into sewing pins.
The cypress wood base is adorned with a traditional floral print fabric.
Dimensions: 1-1/8"w x 1-1/8"d; pins are 38mm long
Each pin cushion and set of pins comes boxed.
