Collection: TOHO Seed Beads

The history of glass bead making in Japan is very short. It started in the Hiroshima Fukuyama area in the beginning of the Showa era (1930s)as a “Mom-and-Pop” business. 

TOHO was started on Nov.3rd,1951. Since then, we’ve strived to improve our techniques, designed and created new equipment and facilities. Fortunately we can say today that when it comes to quality, we are the number one glass beads maker in the world and have gained respect of not only the people in this country but around the world. This is all thanks to the cooperation and understanding of our clients around the world.

With a slightly larger hole than other seed beads, these round Japanese seed beads are a popular choice for bead weaving projects that require multiple thread passes.

Beaders find that Toho seed beads size to size, seems to be a bit larger and more regular  than Miyuki’s round seed beads.  For example, a Toho size 11/0 seems a bit larger than a Miyuki size 11/0.  But the difference is so minimal that you can easily combine the two in your designs. 

Some Beaders find that Toho seed beads are more regular with minimal wastage. To them, Toho round seed beads feel better to work with.  

Beading like any art has it's passionate followers.  Like an artists brush some prefer working only with Delica, others Miyuki or Precioasa and some TOHO. 

At Beadazzle, we carry all four the artisans. 

For those who are learning or just practicing, we carry seed beads from India, China and Japan that are sold in huge bags for far less.  Of course, those are not of the same quality as TOHO, Preciosa, Miyuki and Delica but are great for beginners that are just learning.
