Product & Story

Ohajiki Sewing Pins

Ohajiki, a classic children’s toy made from coin-shaped glass beads, adorn these needle-sharp sewing pins.
The artisans at Plants Bead Works Tokyo designed these exquisite Ohajiki Sewing Pins to bring a childlike sense of wonder and joy to any sewing project.
The durable steel-and-nickel needle of the pin is manufactured in Hiroshima, a city with a 300-year history of high-quality needle production. Rigorus quality control ensures that pins are of uniform thickness and pierce cloth with ease.

Plants Beads Works, established in Kokubunji, Tokyo in 2011.

While creating various forms of glasswork, the artisan came to learn that in old days some people used to carry an Ohajiki as an amulet to expel evil spirits away, so he became interested in Ohajiki as a subject of his creation. Since then, his creation has been mainly focused on making original Ohajiki.
Ohajiki motif glass bead heads have distinctive delicate patterns with gentle colors. The unique patterns of Ohajiki are determined in flames with true craftsmanship.
