Inspiration/Story Behind This Product
Kumihimo is a braiding technique that is used in the making of long decorative strands. Ancient samurai warriors used to decorate their armor and sometimes hold it together using kumihimo cords. Kumohimo is a fun and colorful part of Japanese heritage.

The literal meaning of the word kumihimo is "come together." The name suits the braids, which are painstakingly connected by their makers. Designs do not appear in kumihimo by chance. Expert braiders have learned how to place their pieces of thread around their tools to create the patterns they desire. With experience, kumihimo enthusiasts develop braiding techniques that are so complex as to border on engineering. They swap colors and thicknesses around in the midst of making single cords to deliberately disrupt their carefully planned patterns.
