japanese miniature sewing set, sewing set in wooden box, traditional scissors, needle cushion, thread spool, needle to fix pulled threads
My Japanese mother in law always used this set when fixing a button. At first she got her needle and thread ready placing it securely in the needle cushion. Then she was ready to go!
The set includes- - 2 packs of high quality Japanese sewing needles and a needle case. - a small needle cushion made of Japanese chirimen fabric. - a pair of Japanese traditional scissors with scissor case made of chirimen. - black and white thread wound around a chirimen itomaki ( thread bobbin). - a needle threader. - a special needle to fix pulled threads. ( put the point of this needle through the pulled thread on the front of the garment. Push the needle through to the back of the garment. The pulled thread moves together with the rough edge of the needle, disappearing from the front of the garment and leaving a smooth finish). My family loves this needle. My sons are always using it and of course never returning it to my sewing box! So I have 5 of them! - box measures 7cm x 9cm and is made of Japanese Sugi wood. - weighs 43gm.
KIRI WOOD. A chest made of Kiri wood is used by Japanese women to store their kimono. Why? Because Kiri wood keeps away insects and keeps a good humidity level - no mould and no moth holes! It’s great for storing needles too- no rust!
