This Sewing Needle set contains 3 Meboso needles to mend or sew thicker fabrics. Meboso needles are special needles: they are polished vertically, allowing them to pierce the fabric very easily and without using much force. The needles are kept in a thick paper spool produced by Aichi Shikan Seizosho. The spool itself is embellished with a Kanagawa silk gold and silver tassel, and packaged beautifully as well.
Meboso needles were a favourite from the seamstresses of old in Kanazawa, famous for their superior sewing. They were said to keep their needles, their tools of the trade, close to them in silk pouches or hand-sewn bags around their necks.
