Halls 'Elephant Brand' Sewing Needle Pack - 1960's

Fun fact- did you know that Redditch, England once produced 90% of the worlds sewing needles?!

Made by the William Halls Company, these needles were known as the 'Elephant Brand' and were made sometime around the late 50's/early 60's in Studley, Redditch.   

We found them in an old haberdashery warehouse and they are totally new and unused. Unwrapping the needles from the outer card you will see they have been put onto a nice little bit of fabric.

Carpet Sharps 16/18: 5 Needles
