$37.50



This listing is for one Kutani sake cup pin cushion. Please note that this listing is for the pincushion only and that the pins and other notions are not included. Please select the color and number of pincushions you would like using the pull - down menus.

This pin cushion meets the exacting standards of the workers from a sewing factory in Kanazawa. The story goes that the workers were fined for losing their pins, and this is the pin cushion they depended on to keep their pins secure and in good condition.

The hand-crafted floral pincushions are set in a colorful Kutani sake cup, each with different traditional motifs of Yoshidaya-, Iidaya-, and Ko-Kutani-style. The Kutani-ware, a style of porcelain made in Ishikawa prefecture is known for its beautifully painted and overglazed decorations.

The wadding of each pin cushion is precisely weighed to achieve uniform density to hug your pins. It's wrapped in crepe to firmly hold your pins, and adorned with a single glass bead in the center.

Dimensions: Ceramic cups vary from 2 to 2.5" wide (48-58mm) and are 2" (48mm) high
