Cohana Thread Snips with Silk Braid and Pincushion of Mini Masu
World-famous Shozaburo scissors are made with devotion, one pair at a time, by artisans who do not compromise on quality. The makers are direct descendants of the spirit of the original maker, Shozaburo himself.The handles of these smooth-cutting Shozaburo thread scissors are finished in modern style and wrapped in Iga braids, a material made primarily for use in armor-making since before the Nara period. The beautifully dyed silk threads are gentle on the hands, bringing about a unique texture and experience.
apanese masu, wooden measuring boxes, have a 1,300-year history. This skill and culture has been handed down by Ohashi Ryoki in Ogaki, Gifu prefecture. This little mamemasu wooden box, created with delicate craftsmanship, has been turned into a lovely pincushion that fits snugly in the palm of your hand. It is made from fragrant Japanese cypress, using dovetail joinery to securely hold the shape of the box. The skills of a craftsman have produced a beautiful and functional mamemasu that is just 15mm(0.6 inch) square.
The fabric on the pincushion is a high-quality linen woven in Hamamatsu, which allows needles to pass smoothly through fabric. The colors of the glass head pins match the pincushion.
