Needles by Cohona
Made by Meboso, a Japanese needle maker with a history of more than 430 year, these needles will slide smoothly through your fabric.
Seamstresses from the Kanazawa, a region in Japan noted for its traditional handicrafts cherished their Meboso needles so much they would place then in a container and hang it from their necks, so that they wouldn’t get lost. This story has inspired the packing of these needles, which come in a paper tube container created by Aichi Shikan Seizosho and a tassel made from Kanagawa’s silk and gold threads. Like the tulip needles these would make a beautiful gift for a fellow crafter.
There are two types: Gold – for thin to normal fabric and Silver for thicker fabric like denim or heavy twill cottons.
