Thimble and Needles for Sashiko purpose.

Sashiko thimble and needles


We often receive inquiries regarding thimble and needles we use for sashiko.

It is very important to have the best equipment to maximize Sashiko experience. Good quality thimble and needles will improve the efficiency of stitching and reduce the frustration.


Keiko uses an unique thimble, a round dish type thimble. Our Sashiko technique require this thimble to move needles on our way  (Our style is based on Hida Sashiko technique.)

Also, the needles should have the exact length to maximize the efficiency on stitching.


After we left Hida Sashiko, we couldn't provide the thimble and needles. However, we finally come across to good venders who enabled us to provide the best thimble and needles. They are really good!
