Cohana's adorable Sakura Limited Edition Mini Scissors of Seki have great cutting ability despite their small size! They are the product of a scissor manufacturer's pride, time-tested reliable craftsmanship, inventive ideas, and the production technology that forms their foundation. You can cut with these scissors by gripping them with your fingers and pinching lightly. The cases for these scissors are made from high-quality, genuine leather.

These mini-scissors were created by Hasegawa Cutlery, a manufacturer of edged tools established in 1933 and located in Seki, Gifu Prefecture, Japan's foremost cutlery-making town.

The brilliantly shining, small silk tassels are carefully handmade by Imasato, a specialist in tassels and knots founded in 1907 and located in Yame, Fukuoka Prefecture. For over 100 years, Imasato has been making tassels for Yame Chochin paper lanterns, which are a traditional handicraft. Imasato creates beautiful tassels that shine with subtle, artisanal skill.

The Cohana Pincushion of Mini Masu is a little mamemasu wooden box, created with delicate craftsmanship, turned into a lovely pincushion that fits snugly in the palm of your hand. The fabric on the pincushion is a high-quality linen woven in Hamamatsu, which allows needles to pass smoothly through fabric. The color of the glass head pin matches the pincushion.

Japanese masu, wooden measuring boxes, have a 1,300-year history. This skill and culture has been handed down by Ohashi Ryoki in Ogaki, Gifu prefecture. The skills of a craftsman have produced a beautiful and functional mamemasu that is just 15mm (0.6 inch) square. It is made from fragrant Japanese cypress, using dovetail joinery to securely hold the shape of the box.
