The cast iron paper weights are made to resemble a button and are individually cast and then painted. They can be used as weights to hold down fabric when sewing, and as pencil holders.

Nambu ironware is made in the Oisei Iron Foundry in Iwate (in Mizusawa-ku Haneda), also known as a "casting town" where many iron casting companies are located. The naturally textured surface of the iron will smooth with wear over time.

The Cohana range of artisan sewing tools is produced by the 65 year old manufacturer of sewing supplies, Kawaguchi, who are also the makers of Nuno Deco. They have sourced small manufacturers across the regions of Japan to create a collection of artisan sewing accessories made by hand. Themed using colours which represent the changing seasons, the Cohana range are beautiful pieces designed as practical tools for craft and sewing fan. They are the perfect keepsake or gift for the craft-isan in your life.
