I am a gorgeous set of 30 glass head sewing pins enclosed in a compact wooden box. My pins are manufactured in Hiroshima, a city with a 300-year history of high-quality needle production. I am supple yet durable and I easily pierce cloth of various weights.

My pinheads are a colour-coordinated mix of translucent and opaque glass. Carry me around in my very handy and highly durable cherry wood box and take a minute to admire my band with a lustrous flower-shaped button cut from the black-lipped pearl oyster that holds me all together.

Fun Fact: Daiwa Sangyo established itself in 1970 as a producer of wooden medicine cabinets for the local industry. As they evolved through the years they continue to use traditional techniques to pursue new ways of making wooden products.
