Kumihimo is a traditional Japanese craft. Dozens of threads are combined into a bundle (one unit), and three or more bundles are used, and they are made by alternately crossing diagonally in a certain way. Depending on the color and number of threads to be combined and how to combine them, various strings will be finished. For example, it is used in various ways, such as tying a kimono and stringing a drawstring bag in a familiar place.
In this workshop, we will make a kumihimo strap that can be easily made using two colors of silk thread.
