Premier Japanese Sewing Needles

Misuya Needles are a special quality of needles produces by Japanese needle shop Misuya Chubei in the Matusbara district of Kyoto, Japan, since 1819. Kyoto's reputation for quality fashion produced by the best materials and tools gave need for Misuya Chubei to have needles that could keep with their high standards. In order to be considered an official Misuya Needle, the needle must be:

  1. Strong but Flexible: must be flexible enough for easy sewing
  2. Needle's Eye is an almost perfect circle: less likely for thread to break
  3. Smooth Line: needles become thinner/finer from eye to point
  4. Polishing technique: the needles must be polished in the same direction via length and not width
  5. Wrapping: needles are wrapped in aluminum foil to prevent damage

It is said only a handful of artisans remain who can create such high quality needles. Misuya Needles come in various thicknesses for projects, each carrying the high-quality seal of approval that comes with being a Misuya Needle. Packs of Misuya Needles come with 25 carefully crafted needles ready for any project. Whether it's stitching together a new piece or adding a delicate embroidery to your work, these needles are the perfect compliment to your work. You can purchase these amazing needles during our line of Quilt Festival Japan tours or during a private tour package through the traditional city of Kyoto!
