What are TOHO seed beads and why would you choose them? TOHO is a Japanese manufacturer of glass seed beads, respected worldwide for their quality and consistency.  The shape is almost perfectly round and the hole is made larger than most seed beads to allow multiple passes of needle and thread. Size 11/0 and 8/0 are the most common sizes, and they come in a wide range of colors. Consider TOHO seed beads for bead weaving, loom work, and bead stringing applications. Their economic pricing and color variety also makes them a great choice for art projects that use a lot of small beads, either sewed on or glued.  

The diagrams below illustrate Toho's larger hole size. In addition to allowing for multiple thread passes, the larger hole also creates lighter beads, which gives you more beads by weight. Note that the holes are sometimes lined in silver or other colors to add a unique inner shine.


Auntie's Beads Direct carries the most complete selection of TOHO available online, at the best possible price per gram in our popular Economy Packs.  Enjoy shopping, and be sure to check out our Customer Experiences and Creations with TOHO seed beads as shown below:
