Kumihimo Japanese Braiding


Kumihimo (which means "gathered thread") is a form of braiding, developed by the Japanese. The Kumihimo disk is made of sturdy dense foam which holds the threads firmly. Includes basic instructions in English and French for making round, flat, rectangular and square Kumihimo braids. Kumihimo braiding uses a variety of cord and thread materials, including rattail cord, bugtail cord, imitation silk, silk and nylon thread, hemp cord, macramé cord and more.

Kumihimo Deluxe Cord Maker by Fiber Goddess
$50.00

kumihimodeluxe2pic.bmp

THe kit contains 3 looms (1/4", 1/2", and 1"), 8 small bobbins, 8 large bobbins, tension clip, and instructions. This kit will allow you to make cords as fine as those made using fibers as thin as sewing thread and as thick as those made with fabric and beads. This Custom Cord Maker is a weaving tool that is so simple to learn, that we say that it is Easy as 123! This weaving method some of you may know as “fill in the gap”. Since techniques usually begin simply and become more complex, I believe that “fill in the gap” is the forerunner of the Japanese braiding method known as kumihimo, which allows you to produce more elaborate and complex braids. A cord made on the Diva Cord Maker looks the same as the kumihimo 8-strand round braid made on the marudai loom or on the, more portable, foam round loom. The advantage of using the Diva Cord Maker is that it is faster, it does not require your undivided attention, and you can use thicker materials such as fabric strips and large beads. It suitable for ages 7 – 99!
