These are thread clippers made with individually hand crafted stainless steel blades, made one pair at a time by artisans who are direct descendants of Shozaburo.
The handles are wrapped in Iga braids, a woven braid made from dyed silk threads. The technique dates back before the Nara period where Iga braids were woven for armour-making.
There are three colourways available for the Shozaburo thread clippers.
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 craftisan in your life.
