Tulip needles are know worldwide for their exceptional quality and craftsmanship. They are made in Hiroshima, Japan using traditional needle-making techniques that have been handed down through generations.
Milliners, also called straw needles, are longer than other hand embroidery needles. They have a straight shaft and eye and a sharp tip, making them perfect for stitches like Bullion knots and French knots. They are also commonly used for smocking and pleating.
Tulip needles are beautifully packaged in a reusable tube with cork stopper, and are available in two sizes. Size #1 is larger than #3.
