Kumihimo can be translated as “gathering of threads”. It is a traditional Japanese technique of braiding strands of silk to create colored cords. When the Samurai warriors became powerful, Kumihimo braids were used to attach swords to their sashes and to wrap sword handles for a better grip. Today Kumihimo has become very popular with craft lovers, and can be used with colorful beads, pearls and crystals to make beautiful bracelets and necklaces.
