Bohin Couture sewing pins are made in city of L’Aigle in Normandy, France, where pins have been made since the 12th century. Bohin have been manufacturers of hand sewing needles and pins since 1833, and and since 1952 they remain the only French manufacturer of sewing needles.
These pins are .60 mm in diameter, which is a standard size for a wide variety of fabrics. They have no glass or flat head, and have the traditional end which is the preference for many sewists for draping. I also use these pins for hemming and pinning tissue paper patterns (if I haven't traced them). I often mark darts with pins and these slip through the tissue with ease. The pins are strong and made to high quality standards.
It’s perhaps the smallest tool in the craft person’s sewing box, but it can bring joy to your sewing experience. If you haven't used quality pins before, you will soon be separating the blunt from these beauties.
