Tailors Pin W/Shield
NOT IN STOCK
I have this thing for objects that pierce. I have on hand a large collection of safety pins in all shapes & sizes and this one is shaped on an old French laundry bag pin & we have branded it with our very own shield. Use it to hold together your kilt, for all your keys & jingle jangle or even as a tie back on your curtains. This pin has many facets.
Finish: aged brass
Measurements: 10cm high x 3cm wide.
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!
