A beautiful pincushion from Cohana set with 10 color-coordinated glass sewing pins. The glass container is handcrafted in Otaru, Hokkaido by artisans for a one-of-a-kind pincushion in the shape of a plump flowerpot, complete with a matching needle-felted cushion.

Fukugawa Glass Kogei specialize in the intricate Kiriko glass-cutting technique that brings out a flower motif of this vibrant glass pincushion.

The cushion itself uses wool from Hokkaido sheep that is dyed and felted by hand at Kokoromoko, a needlefelting studio run by Mari Sugita. The cushion is removable for extra versatility, as the glass container can also be used as a pen holder, catch-all bowl, or jar for sewing notions and tools.

The heads of the pins are blown from the same glass as their container and then affixed to high-quality needles from Hiroshima that pierce cloth with ease.

Comes with 10 matching glass-head pins
