You are getting 1 handmade (we make it in our own shop) tatting shuttle from Macassar Ebony, also known as Striped Ebony or Diospyros celebica.
Has dramatic striped appearance. Yellow to reddish brown body with stripes.
The wood can be extremely expensive, along with most other Ebony members. The tree grows slowly, has a very limited natural habitat, and is highly desired for the wood’s aesthetic appeal and toughness.
Tends to be rather difficult to work, due to its high density
The points of the shuttle interlock well and hold perfectly the thread. Even when completely filled with thread and beads, the shuttle doesn't unlock during the tatting process.
Please kindly note that the color of the shuttle may be different from the one on the pictures as the color of the heartwood may vary.
Beautiful shuttle! It arrived surprisingly quickly given that it was shipping internationally, and has beautiful figuring. The seller even included an additional gift shuttle, which is also beautiful! This was money well spent :).
