Handcrafted by artisans in Tsugaru, Japan, these beautiful Wooden Kokeshi Doll Pin Cushions celebrate the art and history of Kokeshi Doll making in northern Japan. In collaboration with the Tsugaru Kokeshi Museum, these dolls were designed to add a modern, functional twist to the traditional kokeshi doll.
Each doll opens to reveal a pure wool pin cushion inside, which can help prevent needles from rusting. The base features a small magnet so that the Kokeshi Doll can be used to pick up stray pins and needles on your work surface as well. The pin cushion includes three Meboso Hachirobei Shoten sewing needles.
Each Kokeshi Doll Pin Cushion is carefully crafted by hand. Artisans hand paint the facial expressions on each doll, so small variations may occur. Additionally, natural variations in color and wood grain are also possible.

I love everything from the Cohana Collective and this pincushion is no exception. It’s the perfect traveling companion for my EPP needles as it’s small and easy to pack. I get so many compliments from my friends when they see it!
