"Kaga Yubinuki" is not a just functional thimble
but lightweight, very soft-touch and decorative.

In the Edo period (1603-1867) in Kaga, Kimono seamstresses started to make thimbles with leftover silk threads.

"Kaga Yubinuki" is getting popular in Japan again, since Ms. Yukiko Ohnishi has published the manual book to make "Kaga Yubinuki."

We also started to make "Kaga Yubinuki" with her wonderful books.
