PONY sewing needles

The corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities of Needle Industries (India) Private Limited are located in the Nilgiri Mountain, in southern India, 2200 meters above sea level.

The Company was incorporated in 1949 as a subsidiary of a major British manufacturer of hand sewing needles, knitting pins and hard haberdashery products. Manufacturing commenced with the very simple gramophone needle.

In the 1960s and 70s the ownership of the Company was then slowly transferred into Indian hands and with this change in ownership came the introduction of the Company’s own brand PONY. Over a period of time with internally sourced funds, the product range was expanded; Hand Sewing Needles, Knitting Pins and Accessories, Snap Fasteners, Hooks & Eyes and a complete range of pins were all introduced and now constitute the bulk of manufacture. 

A highly specialized and extensive range of Surgical Suture Needles was introduced in the 1960s and continues to be a growing product group for the Company.

The global success the Company has been is a result of a dedicated management team with true commitment to quality and customer service. The management team is backed by technical excellence which has enabled the company to continuously improve upon manufacturing methods thereby improving product consistency and manufacturing efficiency. 

Stainless steel traditional eye

Soon The Needle Lady will have a line of 

100% Stainless steel hand sewing needles 

Made in America

with traditional closed eyes 

Stainless steel needles are unique and important for lots of reasons:

  • Stainless steel has no nickel plating
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Will not rust stain left in your project
  • Will not snap and break like traditional needles
  • You can sharpen them if they get dull (nickel plated needles cannot be sharpened because the plating is removed and the steel underneath is not as smooth and it will rust.

PONY Spiral Eye

What is the difference between Pam's Original Spiral Eye Needles and PONY Spiral Eye Needles?


TOP: PONY Spiral Eye Needles will be made in India using traditional needle manufacturing processes so the blank needle are stamped and then cut. This gives a smaller diameter profile at the eye than Pam's Original Spiral Eye Needle.

BOTTOM: Pam's Original Spiral Eye Needles are made in Minnesota out of surgical grade stainless steel using a machine that creates a tapered blank needle which then gets the eye cut into it. This means the diameter of these needles gets larger as it gets closer to the eye.
