Product & Story

Ryukyu Glass Sewing Pins (Japan Blue)(45-219)

Sewing Pins inspired by the sea of Okinawa. The crystal-clear blue sparkles and shines.


This Ryukyu glass wait hand is made inspired by the blue sea and sun of Okinawa. The deep gradation and glittering silver parts look like a coral reef shining in the deep sea. The craftsmen carefully weld the glass to the needle one by one.
The durable steel-and-nickel pins are 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 length and pierce cloth with ease.
