From the Asuka and Nara periods to the present day, Japanese braids have achieved unprecedented development as a traditional craft that possesses not only practicality and decorativeness, but also a high degree of spirituality.
In 1968, the Domyo Koshiki Ito Kumiho School was established with the hope of inheriting and developing Japanese Kumihimo, which has such an excellent tradition. The book "Traditional Kumihimo: Domyo's Hill, Ayakedai" (Shufunotomosha) has been published. It was a good book that explained Takadai's techniques with great care, but after 40 years, this book went out of print, and a new publication was long sought after.
In this publication, the basic structure of the old book is inherited as it is, and the method of assembling is rearranged according to the Koudai curriculum that is taught at the school, so that the width, dimensions, and joints can be understood as a reference when assembling. I have attached the full size and enlarged photos. In addition, the arrangement of threads and how to draw twill are also illustrated in an easy-to-understand manner.
