Kumihimo: The Essence of Japanese Braiding

Authors: Aiko Sakai & Makiko Tada

The confluence of spirit and thread defies the complexity of Kumihimo, the traditional Japanese braid. As an object of beauty as well as honor, the braid also has a role in utility and fashion. In this advanced work, braid construction is explored using the instruments for creation, the marudai, the kakudai, and the ayatakedai by stepped diagrams and basic instructions. More than 50 braid designs are detailed. This is an English translation of the original Japanese publication from 1980.
