*On January 1st there was an incredibly destructive 7.5 magnitude earthquake. It caused fatalities, and was followed by constant aftershocks for days, which further traumatized the survivors. 

Hiromi and the team are safe, they had no injuries, but the studio suffered significant damage, especially her inventory of beautifully glazed ceramic cups. These are the cups that make Hiro pincushions on our website.

Our colleagues in the region are banding together, offering mutual support in remarkable ways. One is even serving as a translator for Central World Kitchen, providing essential meals to those affected.

Yet, they need more than just local support. They need us – their global family of crafters.

We will donate all proceeds of this special edition of the Macaron Tape Measure. In addition, through Feb 13 we will also donate a portion of sales for all Hiro products back to her. Each purchase is more than just a beautiful tool; it's a gesture of support, a lifeline to a community in need. Your support will ripple through the network of Hiro's local artisans, aiding fabric mills, ceramicists, lacquer painters, and bladesmiths.

Let's show them that a small measure (pun intended) of help from our global crafting community can create waves of positive change. Together, we can bring comfort and aid to our friends, proving once again that the heart of crafting is not just in the creation but in the connections we forge along the way.
