HISTORY OF SILK THIMBLES:

During Edo period (17-19th century), Kaga region of Japan (modern day Ishikawa prefecture) thrived as a castle city. Kaga was famous for pottery, green tea, and above all, its kimono making. The seamstress of kimono makers began to use leftover silk thread to make their own silk thimbles - that was the beginning of this traditional craft, as it is known today as Kaga Yubinuki (yubinuki means thimble in Japanese). The various designs created by seamstresses were handed over generations to this day over 200 years.
