Mending Pincushions by Maze & Vale


These gorgeous pincushions feature a unique section of the Mending design, screen printed by hand with non toxic, water based inks, on a hand dyed, Japanese cotton. They’re stuffed firmly with 100% wool fleece and nestled into a natural wooden base, hand finished with beeswax and natural oils, creating a beautiful and sustainable way to store your pins.

Mending is inspired by sashiko, the ancient Japanese mending technique, which uses beautifully uniform, thick stitches to repair worn areas of cloth. This representation is more haphazard, less planned, and embraces the beauty of overlapping marks and the new shapes they create.
