Mini Scissors -- Despite their small size, the cute mini scissors have great cutting ability! They are the product of a scissors manufacturer’s pride — time-tested, reliable craftsmanship, inventive ideas, and the production technology that forms their foundation.
These mini scissors are created by Hasegawa Cutlery, a manufacturer of edged tools established in 1933 and located in Seki, which is Japan’s foremost cutlery-making town.
The small silk tassels are carefully handmade my Imasato, a specialist in tassels and knots founded in 1907 and located in Yame, Fukuoka Prefecture. For over 100 years, Imasato has been making tassels for Yame Chochin paper lanterns, which are a traditional handicraft.The cases for these scissors are made from high-quality, genuine leather. Made in Japan in Gifu Prefecture
Mini Masu Pin Cushion -- This little mamemasu wooden box, created with delicate craftsmanship, has been turned into a lovely pincushion that fits snuggly in the palm of your hand.It is made from fragrant Japanese cypress, using dovetail joinery to securely hold the shape of the box.
The skills of a craftsman have produced a beautiful and functional mamemasu that is just 15mm(0.6 inch) square.The fabric on the pincushion is a high-quality linen woven in Hamamatsu, which allows needles to pass smoothly through fabric.The colors of the glass head pins match the pincushion.
Japanese masu, wooden measuring boxes, have a 1,300-year history.This skill and culture has been handed down by Ohashi Ryoki in Ogaki, Gifu prefecture.
