Equidistant | Red Dot Design Award

Irregular stitched lines are common with an inexperienced sewing novice. But with the Equidistant needle, users are guided along to make neat stitches. The solution lies in the coloured markings on the needles that reflect the spacing of the stitches. Markings in different colours indicate different stitch lengths and spacing. This greatly enhances the effects of hand sewing and makes the process more efficient. Equidistant also considers the problems in traditional needle storage box designs. Users tend to have a problem looking for specific needles from a box of needles. As such, a box is intuitively designed to remind users to return needles of the same type into the same compartment after use. A magnetic section on the box also works like a temporary needle holder.
