These adorable pincushions were inspired by the elegance and joyousness of Masu cups, but made in miniature by master craftsmen at Ohashi Ryoki in Gifu Prefecture.
These Mini Masu Pincushions measure just 15 mm (0.6 in) square and feature sophisticated Japanese dovetail joinery that does not require nails or glue to hold the shape of the box. The smooth hinoki cypress of the box gives off a light, woodsy fragrance.
A high-quality linen woven in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka is used as the fabric of the pincushion, which allows pins and needles to pierce easily without dulling them.
The pincushion includes one matching sewing pin made by Glass Studio Kinari in Osaka.
Each package contains one pin cushion and one pin; the colors of the glass head pins match the pincushion.
Dimensions: Wooden base is 15mm(0.6 in) square
