Bones have been used to create sewing needles in many cultures for thousands of years, the world’s oldest sewing needle with an eye found to date was created from an unidentified Bird Bone and measures in just under 3”, this needle was found inside Siberia’s Denisova Cave and is said to be 50-60,000 years old. Experts believe that this sewing needle predated homosapiens and was created by an extinct species of human known as the Denisovans. Other bird bone sewing needles have been found in Sibudu Cave in South Africa which also date back to 50-60,000 years, although it is not clear if these had an eye for thread.
