The small wood spools with thread are shaped like a horse chestnut flowers, and made by Golondrina, a small woodworking shop and craftsmanship laboratory that seems to leap from the pages of a picture book in the Suwa district of Nagano Prefecture. Each spool is carefully cut from wood, one at a time. Golondrina has a unique philosophy of “Things That Excite”.
High-quality button thread, developed with an exacting focus on performance by the sewing thread manufacturer Fujix (founded in 1921 in Kyoto), is wrapped around the spools. This all-purpose thread can be used for the many kinds of work you do with needles as well as simply sewing on buttons.
Fujix has developed a range of threads for a multitude of functions. You can turn the spool into an accessory by threading a string or metal fitting through the cut hole and create a lanyard, scissor sheath, or a necklace and earrings!
