The Tulip Co. Ltd is in Japan, and specializes in manufacturing high quality needles. Each package holds four needles.
These are flexible and springy needles that will bend into and through tight spaces and beads that are spaced so perfectly close to each other and not become S shaped. Another advantage is that the tips are slightly rounded to make it easier to avoid splitting your thread.
The eye is gold plated to aid in threading. Many needles will have a slight burr on one side of the eye, maling threading difficult, but the gold plating helps smooth over any burrs making these superior needles for this reason alone. The gold plating also helps make the eye easier to see and thus easier to thread.
