Cohana Sakura Mizuhiki Pin Set
This pretty set of 3 pins is part of Cohana's Sakura 2021 range which celebrates the cherry blossom season in Japan.
The smooth, sharp pins are made in Hiroshima. They are decorated with Mizuhiki Awaji balls in 3 shades of pink, one dark, one light and one metallic.
The Mizuhiki knots are made by Kinoshita Mizuhiki in Ida City. Mizuhiki is a traditional Japanese art form made from a special cord which is made from starched rice paper which is then painted or wrapped with silk or plastic to add colour. It is traditionally used as a form of gift wrapping and each type of knot has a special meaning.
The pins are 40 mm long and 0.5 mm thick. Comes in a pack of three in a small packet.
The pincushion is not included but you can buy it here.
