The pin cushion that meets the exacting standards of the workers from a sewing factory in Kanazawa. The story goes that the workers were fined for losing their pins, and this is the pin cushion they depended on to keep their pins secure and in good condition.
The hand-crafted petals of the pincushion are set in a colorful Kutani sake cup, each with different traditional motifs of Yoshidaya-, Iidaya-, and Ko-Kutani-style. The Kutani-ware, a style of porcelain made in Ishikawa prefecture, is known for its gloriously painted and overglazed decorations.
The wadding of each pin cushion is precisely weighed to achieve uniform density to hug your pins. It's wrapped in crepe to firmly hold your pins, and adorned with a single glass bead in the center.
Dimensions: Ceramic cups vary from 2 to 2.5" wide (48-58mm) and are 2" (48mm) high
