"Le Piccole" means "The Petite" in Italian. These fine petite scissors are crafted in Italy with exceptional care and attention to detail. Extremely sharp and delicate, they are perfect for embroidery or any project that requires precision, including fine paper crafts, lace work, or ribbon embroidery. They also tuck quite neatly into a travel sewing kit, with your other essential notions. Housed in their own aluminum tin with a copper finish, they make a nice present - for you or for someone else.
