Tulip Pincushion W/Wood Base


Product Description

The Tulip Pincushion W/Wood Base is a series of pincushions in 12 colors representing the months. All materials are produced in Japan.  The material for the pincushion base is a gentle-looking cherry wood from various kinds of wood. Giving importance to maintaining a texture and appearance unique to the natural material, Tulip designed the base to be comfortable to the touch. Placing the highest priority on having needles smoothly go into the pincushion, a thick, high-quality cotton sheeting was selected as the cloth for the pincushion. With a very smooth and soft texture, the cloth helps you smoothly insert needles into the pincushion. Made in Japan.  Approx.  2.5".
