  • On my vintage hardware wall at The Society inc I have a ring of these vintage pins that I picked on one trip or another. They are very much about making the most of what you have at hand, in this case shaping wire into a useful tool that can hold your clothes up to dry, clasp your papers together or get pinned to the wall to hold your photographs.

    Finish: metal

    Measurements: 12.5h x 3w cm.

    CARE INSTRUCTIONS

    Our products are hand forged using honest & humble materials. Their imperfections, patinas and variations are intrinsic to the underlying importance of craftsmanship within India.

    If the product is made from brass, it will patina & age over time. This ever-changing characteristic makes the object even more beautiful.

    If the product is blackened steel, Linseed oil or Penetrol can be used to keep it rich & dark in colour. This will also prevent & remove any rust which may build up over time in coastal or wet environments. Dot a rag with Penetrol & massage into the steel for 3-5 minutes & leave to dry. We recommend a few coats over the life of the product.

    If the product is crafted with raw leather, it is designed to age & darken over time. We love when the story of the user & their environment is imprinted on our products. Oxalic acid can be used to wipe down raw leather to remove any dark stains or spills. A little goes a long way!
