Kumihimo, or the art of braiding, is a satisfying
and beautiful craft. Whether you sit in
front of a marudai or use an inexpensive braiding disk, you can easily
and quickly create many beautiful kumihimo braids for jewelry,
clothing, hair adornment, bookmarks, or myriad of other uses.
Everything you need to braid is contained on
these pages - instructions, equipment, beautiful threads.
I fell in love with braiding through a dear friend.
Braiding is a way for me to come back to my center, to breathe
and work with my hands. It's a form of meditation as well as
an elegant craft. My hope is that you also experience the inner
and outer richness of braiding.
