Marking Pins with Glass Beads
Mysterious "tombo-dama" (glass beads), their production method already established by the Nara period (which began in 710 A.D.), using closely-guarded techniques.
It is said that in the Edo period (1603-1868 A.D.), with much trade arriving from China and Europe, glass-making techniques from abroad were also entering the stream, and the production of "tombo-dama" became even more varied.
Cohana's marking pins are handmade with care, one-by-one, using tombo-dama techniques.
The floral designs for these tombo-dama are called "millefiori," meaning "a thousand flowers." The components are heated in the flame from a burner, and carefully shaped.
The pins are made in Hiroshima, an area famous for their production, so they sew smoothly. Includes 3 .
Glass Beads Diameter: 5mm
Pincushions of Cypress and Banshu Textile
The base, with its uniquely plump, round shape, is made from fragrant hinoki cypress from the Kii Mountains.
The material is "Banshu weave," produced in the North Harima region of Hyogo Prefecture.
They are distinguished by their natural texture, abundance of color, and wonderful feel.
The pin cushion is filled with stuffing that takes pins easily, and does not cause rust.
