Cohana Sewing Needles in a Tube
Japanese needles have a reputation for being some of the finest and these Meboso Needles are no exception! They have a history of more than 430 years, and have been loved by seamstresses in Kanazawa.
The most unique characteristic of the "Meboso Needles" is its ability to pierce with little contact with the fabric, made possible because of its vertically polished surface. By adding an extra touch to these delicate needles, they have been made to smoothly slide through the fabric.
We have two different needles available:
- Gold - for light to medium weight fabrics such as thin cotton, silk and crepe.
- Silver - for thick fabrics such as canvas and denim.
Please select which one you would like from the drop down menu.
The needle was an important work tool for these seamstresses, and it is said that they cherished their needles by enveloping them in hand-sewn bags or placing them in a container which hung from their necks, so that they wouldn't get lost. Their story has inspired Cohana to place extra consideration into choosing a packaging for these needles. They decided to use containers created by Aichi Shikan Seizosho, a company which has produced many paper tube spools. Then attached tassels, made with manufacturer Kanagawa's silk and gold threads.
