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, they've strived to improve their techniques, designed and created new equipment and facilities. Today, TOHO has become one of the top quality glass beads maker in the world.  

With a slightly larger hole than other seed beads, TOHO Round and Triangle 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, seem 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 Preciosa and some Love TOHO! 

At Beadazzle, we carry all four!
