Vintage Wooden Thread Winder
Beautiful vintage wooden thread winders from the Yokota (Daruma) thread factory in Osaka, Japan. These winders were used from the early 20th century until the 1970s when the factory became the current distribution centre for Daruma threads.
Each has a coloured end and the individual marks and grooves of many years as an essential part of the thread manufacturing process.
A fascinating memento and piece of Japanese textile history!
NB: you can put a note on your order if you would like to specify a colour and I will do my best to accommodate your choice, however as each colour is limited, this may not be possible.
