Toilet pins


Merchant and Mills Toilet pins – At 45mm long, these French, black glass head pins are strong, and quite beautiful.

These traditional toilet pins are an unusual pin being quite long at 45mm. Before the button became commonplace, many clothes were pinned together and a lady would have pins on her dressing table. The toilet pins come from an era when one would need pins for hats, a corsage, etc. They are made in Spain and used to pin together layers of very thick fabrics – particularly useful in curtain making.

Please note the stem of the current batch of toilet pins is black.
