Buy Seed Beads from Japanese Toho at Smyks
The Japanese company Toho is one of the worlds leading manufacturers of the small glass beads called Seed Beads and it was founded in Hiroshima in 1951. Industrial production of glass beads in Japan dates back to the 1930s, when many smaller manufacturers joined forces. In particular, the traditional Kabuki theatre was initially a large consumer of the small beads, which were used on costumes. Today, the beads come in many sizes and hundreds of different colours and Toho's beads are recognised for their high uniformity and quality.
