The smooth, sharp pins are made in Hiroshima. They are decorated with Mizuhiki Awaji balls in the Cohana signature and seasonal colours.
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 metal 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. They come in a set of three in a small packet, beautifully wrapped.
We sell beautiful and useful things for makers. Our products are sourced with care and consideration for those who make them and we work with smaller companies and individuals whose sourcing and manufacturing process are transparent.
We hope to be an inclusive company and strive to create an environment that is welcoming and embraces diversity, both with our online presence, the makers we represent, our physical pop-ups events and our collaborations.
We welcome suggestions about how we can improve our approach.
We donate monthly to theses two amazing charities:
* Labour Behind the Label
* The Runnymede Trust.
