Sewing machi­nes are get­ting big­ger and more com­plex while mobi­li­ty beco­mes more important in our ever­y­day life. Peop­le are more open to move to dif­fe­rent coun­tries, live in big cities and have small sin­gle flats.

We deve­lop the most com­pact com­pu­ters, all-in-one-pro­duc­ts for tra­vel­ling & out­door activi­ties and smart solu­ti­ons for space limi­ted inte­riors. But the sewing machi­ne was not adjus­ted to our pre­sent situa­ti­on and did gene­ral­ly not chan­ge much in the past. Nål­in­tu (nål: need­le, lin­tu: bird) is a hand­held sewing machi­ne for small apart­ments, tra­vel­ling and out­door craf­ting. The device is not only cha­rac­te­ri­zed by its small dimen­si­ons and ergo­no­mics but also by its dual usa­bi­li­ty.

It works as a sta­tio­na­ry machi­ne as well as a bat­te­ry-dri­ven por­ta­ble hand­held device. To pro­vi­de com­fort and a bet­ter sight onto the stit­ches the uni­que 30° degree ang­led hand­le is desi­gned to fit per­fec­t­ly in your hand and makes sewing more intui­ti­ve and com­for­ta­ble.
