What is Kumihimo?
Kumihimo is the ancient art of Japanese braid making. The Japanese word means “kumi” (coming together) and “himo” (of threads). This art form dates back over 1500 years. In Samurai times, Kumihimo was used for wrapping sword handles for a better grip and to make armor for men and horses. From the earliest centuries until modern day, Kumihimo braids are used to hold the obi sash on a Kimono.
One event made Kumihimo accessible to everyone and that was the invention of the Kumihimo foam disk by Makiko Tada. It immediately became very popular with crafters around the world, who quickly found contemporary uses for the braid. With one simple, but clever invention the braids which had secured armor and adorned ancient temples found their way to the necks and wrists of 21st century women.
