Safety Pins - 'OLIVE' design (x15)

Safety Pins - 'OLIVE' design (x15)


A mini set of 15 OLIVE design safety pins packaged in a beautiful glass bottle with cork stopper for easy storage.


These iconic BOHIN pins were invented by founder Benjamin BOHIN in 1890, thanks to a unique machine based on the model of a music box.


Classic style safety pins have a coil at one end which can cause damage as stitches can get caught up inside the coil; this 'Olive' ball style prevents this from happening.


The mini 'Olive' shaped ball is made of nickel-plated brass, making it more resistant to opening and closing, as well as more durable.


Still produced on the original machines still in operation at the BOHIN factory in Normany, France.


You will receive 15 safety pins.
