What do the Samurai and Geisha have in common? Both required kumihimo to secure their clothing. Kumihimo loosely trnslates to “gathered threads”. Through different techniques, a person is able to gather many threads together to create a stronger cord. It is a form of braiding… Japanese-style. The technique has been aournd for more than almost 1500 years and was in danger of being a lost art due to the mechanization of the processes. Thankfully, it is enjoying a recent surge in popularity with crafters.
