from the preface
“Japanese Kumihimo is a craft that has developed uniquely in the world for 1400 years since it was introduced from the continent. Kumihimo, which has a structure that is fundamentally different from woven and knitted fabrics, has been used to tie things together, to fasten clothes, and as a part of decoration, and is deeply associated with Japanese culture. Although it has such a long history, this book introduces a part of the charm of Kumihimo that is not widely known.”
・A wide range of publications, from famous patterns that have been produced for generations to new limited editions.
・A color chart of about 180 Domyo colors
This book is not about how to make braids, but mainly about design.
A book about Kumihimo is rare in the world, and it is a worthwhile read.
Please enjoy the profundity of the handwork that has been handed down from generation to generation.
