Meet Sonya Morris, the founder of SOHMO. With a passion for sewing and crafting, Sonya set out to create a brand that would provide high-quality tools for creative minds. And thus, SOHMO was born. With a focus on quality, SOHMO's collection of tailoring shears, embroidery scissors, and pins have quickly become must-haves for sewers and crafters alike.
Sonya's attention to detail and dedication to craftsmanship is evident in each and every SOHMO product. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, SOHMO has the perfect tools for you to bring your creations to life.
Sonya founded SOHMO in Melbourne, Australia in 2018. Disappointed by the lacklustre selection of poorly made sewing tools available at chain stores, Sonya embarked on a journey to find quality sewing tools that are made to last. SOHMO is the result of many years of consideration and investigation to source quality, useful sewing tools. The result is a collection of the highest quality intended to be used for many years to come.
Sewing has always been a part of Sonya’s family. Her grandmother, Una, worked in Melbourne when she was young woman as a seamstress for many years. Once Una had a family, she made clothes for herself, her husband and her six children.
Sonya’s mother also sewed, making many clothes for her when she was a child. She remembers hearing the slow and deliberate movement of her mother’s large sewing scissors cut through layers of fabric on the sewing table. Playing in the sewing room with the jars of buttons and feeling the weight of the heavy pinking shears with black enamel handles.
Today, sewing is no longer a necessity for making ends meet, but rather a relaxing pastime. As such, we believe one should surround themselves with quality tools that make the process enjoyable. Don’t underestimate the delight of experiencing a pair of sharp scissors cutting through layers of heavy linen, or strong smooth pins gliding through silk and cotton fabrics.
SOHMO scissors are hand crafted in Italy by a company that has been manufacturing quality scissors for generations.
We have sourced the best quality pins from China, and packaged in Australia.
We minimise waste where we can - our pins simply packaged in reusable tins secured with a small sticker, and our scissors are packaged in sturdy card boxes designed to be used for safekeeping.
