Meboso Needle Set (Heavyweight) (45-046)

High-quality Meboso needles have a sturdy weight and pierce cloth effortlessly. With a precise, sharp point achieved through rigorous vertical polishing, these needles make for a delightful sewing experience.
Meboso needles have been manufactured in Kanazawa for over 430 years. Seamstresses of the city’s booming textile industry took particular care of their needles, and created hand-sewn bags or pendant-style containers to keep them safe and sharp.
This tradition among seamstresses in Kanazawa was the inspiration for us to produce a special container for the Meboso Needles.
Each set of 8 comes with a unique paper container crafted by Aichi Shikan Seizosho and adorned with a beautiful silk tassel from the manufacturer Kanagawa.
Meboso Needle Set (Heavyweight) contains 8 needles in 3 different lengths for heavyweight cloth (canvas, denim and other thick fabrics)
