The Nottingham is a handmade leather pincushion that will mellow, mature and improve over time.  It will become as unique and as individual as you are.   

We only use premium quality, vegetable-tanned, full-grain leather.  When this is combined with the beautiful handstitched thread, it will stand up to a lifetime of use and abuse. We guarantee that our pincushions won’t degrade but will get better with age as they develop the most beautiful patina. The edges will stay looking gorgeous because we hand burnish and polish every one with pure local beeswax, which completes the finish perfectly.

You will never need to buy another pincushion because we will repair or replace any items if it ever develops a fault under our heirloom guarantee.

This is approximately 3″ on each side and will take a very large number of pins and needles.  The thick leather means you won’t be able to prick yourself as you push them in and you won’t need to pin them to your clothes or the sofa any more!

With our no-quibble 30-day return policy, you have a 100% risk-free online purchase if you are not 100% satisfied with your product.

Why did you call it the ‘Nottingham’?

We want to celebrate everything about our amazing country, its history and heritage as well as it’s past and present.  We believed one of the best ways to do this would be to name all our main products after our amazing towns and cities.  So if you want to learn more about the Nottingham handmade leather pincushion and its namesake, in this case, Nottingham, the beautiful city in Nottinghamshire, with its links to the legend of Robin Hood and to the lace-making, bicycle (notably Raleigh bikes) and tobacco industries, then have a look here:  Nottingham (Nottinghamshire, UK).

Most importantly, we celebrate the UK by utilising what we have available.  We only use UK suppliers for all our materials. You can be proud that if you buy this pincushion, you are helping to support many UK businesses.  

You can also be heartened that we are keeping our traditional heritage crafts alive.  We only use UK based skilled artisans to hand-craft your perfect pincushion.
