The sale price reflects the discrepancy in the glaze on the base of this pincushion, as shown in the product photos. Our standard matte finish turned out shiny, due to a kiln firing extra hot. These bases have no defects, but are simply a deviation from our standard Quintessential Pincushion.
The Quintessential Pincushion features a hand-thrown ceramic base from Athens ceramicist Studio CRL. The cushion is made using Sara Parker Textiles' hand-printed, organic cotton and hemp fabric. The cushion features a satchel filled with organic buckwheat, which sits atop a pillow of organic raw cotton fiber.
The Quintessential Pincushion is the one and only pincushion you will ever need. Beauty and function are perfectly balanced in this sewing room essential.
Dimensions: Vessel: approximately 9.75 cm x 4 cm. Cushion: approximately 7 cm in diameter.
Each pincushion is truly one-of-a-kind as every component is made by hand. Please be aware that dimensions and pattern placement will vary slightly on each one.
