These beautiful ceramic needle minders draw on the traditional skills and materials of Japan that we have come to expect from the gorgeous Cohana brand.
The magnetic needle rest will keep your sewing needles safe and to hand during your projects. You can use the bottom of the needle minder to pick up dropped needles or use as a paperclip holder on your the desk or as a magnet to hold memos and photos.
Awaji Island in Hyogo Prefecture, blessed with good clay, is one of the leading Kawara (Japanese traditional roof tiles) producing areas in Japan. The needle rest is created with the Awaji's rich clay and by the skilled artisans at Irakato. This is made in the same way as a Awaji Kawara roof tiles which is moulded, glazed and fired. The minders have a smooth texture glossy glaze on the rustic texture. Two colors are available: gentle " White" and chic "Gray."
The size is 27mm in diameter and it comes gift boxed.
This is a mini version of the Awaji Kawara Magnetic Needle Rest with Needle Polisher but without the needle polishing function - it is a magnet only.
