Hinoki Pin Cushion


Sweet small pin cushion, handmade with Japanese precision and dedication to detail, which can be hung as lanyard while sewing.

The base, with its uniquely plump, round shape, is made from fragrant hinoki cypress from the Kii Mountains. The material creating the cushion is “Banshu weave,” produced in the North Harima region of Hyogo Prefecture.

The pin cushion is filled with stuffing that takes pins easily, and does not cause rust. They can be worn around the neck while sewing to make them easy to reach.

The Cohana range of artisan sewing tools is produced by the 65 year old manufacturer of sewing supplies, Kawaguchi, the makers of Nuno Deco. Cohana have sourced small manufacturers across the regions of Japan to create a collection of artisan sewing accessories made by hand.

Beautiful pieces designed as practical tools for the craft and sewing fan. A thoughtful heirloom gift for the craft-isan in your life.
