A tiny sewing box packed with Ishikawa's uniqueness!

The wooden box cradles the following exquisite items: 

  • 2 colors of sewing thread on wooden spools that fit perfectly in the box
  • The tiniest pin cushion -- only 1 cm! -- made of vintage shibori-dyed silk
  • 2 easy-thread sewing needles that are a specialized needle to allows the thread to pass through the needle hole by simply putting a thread in the groove on the needle and pushing it. 
  • A plum-shaped magnet that holds a tiny thread snips, which are the smallest stainless steel scissors in Japan with a total length of 45 mm. They have excellent sharpness.

The surface of the paulownia box has a luxurious lacquer finish. This is Yamanaka-nuri and it is available in two paint colors, vermilion and black. It's soft to the touch and will last for decades.
