Kumihimo is a Japanese braiding technique that has allowed artisans to produce both functional and decorative braids for decades. The traditional tool for creating kumihimo braids is the Madurai - usually hand made of wood. If you just want to try your hand at this traditional craft, then this kit with a small braiding board is just for you!

The most common braids use sets of 8, 16 or 32 strands, each strand usually comprising several threads. Finished braids can be used for jewelry, belts or ties.

Not only do you wind up with a beautiful product, you'll learn a traditional art form that is both soothing to do and exciting to accomplish.

The tools required are simple: a working stand or board and weighted bobbins, one bobbin required for each strand of thread.

Included in the set are:

  • a 40-notch braiding board

  • thread in complementary colors

  • bobbins

  • complete instructions

This braiding board allows you to manipulate from 4 to 40 strands of virtually any material thread.
