Ever wonder where the heck you put that needle? Fret no more because I am the handy little needle helper you've been looking for. With a built in magnet you can pop your needle down and pick it back up without a seconds thought, particularly useful during hand sewing and needlework.

I'm also pretty cute, made from a ceramic tile in a flower motif which is glazed and fired, giving me a smooth, glossy coat with a rustic texture. I've got a clever underside which can be used to pick up dropped needles. Or even use me as a paperclip holder or as a magnet to hold memos and photos. I'm super multi-talented.

Fun Fact: Kawara is a traditional Japanese roof tile dating back to 1610. The first Kawara were made for castles and later developed along with the construction rush of various types of buildings in the Edo period. My Awaji Kawara roof tile is by Irakato in Awaji Island using manufacturing methods inherited from his grandfather's generation.
