  • Kumihimo braided cords

    Kumihimo braided cords are made by gathering dozens of threads into separate bunches and then braiding the bunches together into a single cord. For centuries, kumihimo cords have been important articles for tying and binding. Today, kumihimo cords of many different patterns are worn with kimono as obi jime (a decorative girdle tied around the obi of the kimono).
