Otaru Kiriko Pincushion

Regular price¥13,200


A Plump-shaped Small Vessel
with Kiriko Cutouts Reminiscent of Flower Petals


A beautiful Otaru Kiriko Glass Pincushion set with 10 color-coordinated glass sewing pins. Otaru Kiriko Glass Pincushion is handcrafted in Otaru, Hokkaido by artisans for a one-of-a-kind pincushion in the shape of a plump flowerpot, complete with a matching sewing pins and felted cushion.
Our partners at Fukugawa Glass Kogei specialize in the intricate Kiriko glass-cutting technique that brings out a flower motif of this vibrant glass pincushion.
The heads of the pins are blown from the same glass as their container and then affixed to high-quality needles from Hiroshima that pierce cloth with ease.

The cushion itself uses wool from Hokkaido sheep that is dyed and felted by hand at Kokoromoko, a needlefelting studio run by Mari Sugita. The cushion is removable for extra versatility, as the glass container can also be used as a pen holder, catch-all bowl, or jar for sewing notions and tools.

10 sewing pins
10 small color-matched glass-top sewing pins are included.


The pincushion is made up of the top lid and a wool cushion. Make sure to insert the wool cushion entirely to the hole of the lid so that the pincushion can be stabilized.


Pen holder

The base and the top lid without the wool cushion can be used as a pen holder or a single flower vase.

Flower vase

The base can be used as flower vase to enjoy seasonal flower next to you.
