This kogin kit contains all that you need (except for glue) to complete a mirror compact with a kogin embroidered top.

Kogin is a type of Japanese, counted embroidery technique. It it is very easy to do and projects go very quickly.

This is a perfect project for beginner kogin artists. It stitches up very quickly.

There are two kits available. Both kits contain a mirror compact that has 2 mirrors on the inside. One mirror is magnifying. The exterior of the mirror is an antique gold color. The compact measures about 2.75 inches ( 7 cm ) in diameter. Each mirror is about 2.25 inches ( 5.7 cm ) in diameter. The kogin embroidered area on the lid of the compact is also about 2.25 inches ( 5.7 cm ) in diameter.
