The Tulip company of Hiroshima, Japan has been making sewing needles since 1948.  Well-known for their quality sewing needles, they now make some of the finest sashiko needles available. 

Made of nickel plated steel under strict guidelines with cutting edge technology, the needles are polished lengthwise to ensure smooth fabric piercing.  Milled to a perfect sharp, smooth tip, you'll love how smooth and slick these needles feel.
