Cohana Japan Blue - Ryukyu Glass Marking Pins
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 needle of the pin is manufactured in Hiroshima, a city with a 300-year history of high-quality needle production.
Rigorous quality control ensures that pins are of uniform thickness and pierce cloth with ease.
