Kumihimo braids are made of silk threads and were originally used as ties, cording, and belts for clothing and closures for Samurai warriors. Detailed step-by-step photographs present six projects to make a variety of braids, and tips on equipment and advice for developing the projects are included. By using a variety of patterns, colors, and textures, more than 70 other braids can be used to make a range of stunning necklaces, bracelets, cords, and other fashion accessories.
