Iida Mizuhiki Sewing Pins, Yellow
These sewing pins add a touch of glamour to your sewing toolbox. Each set comes with 3 sewing pins -- a dark tone, a coordinating light tone, and a sparkling white.
Iida mizuhiki has been handed down as a traditional handicraft for generations in Nagano Prefecture.
Mizuhiki is a decorative paper cord created by twisting Washi paper and hardening with glue coating. In Japan, mizuhiki is essential for formal gifts, which is said to have originated as far back as in 7th century.There are many ways to express the feelings of the gift-sender with the choice of Mizuhiki colors, numbers and how they are tied for the different type of occasions. The mizuhiki decoration used to make a top of Cohana's sewing pin is called Awaji-dama.
The durable steel-and-nickel pins are manufactured in Hiroshima, a city with a 300-year history of high-quality needle production. Rigorous quality control ensures that pins are of uniform thickness and length to pierce cloth with ease.
