About Kumihimo:
Kumihimo is the traditional Japanese technique of braiding strands of silk to create intricately colored cords. The cords, also called kumihimo, are strong but slender, and have a multitude of uses. Samurai once used kumihimo as laces for their armor. The traditional belt of the kimono, the obi, was once bound by a cord of kumihimo called an obijime. It is an art both culturally significant and beautiful.

In Japanese, the word kumihimo means to gather or combine cord or thread. All of the Kumihimo I make use eight strands of beautiful Japanese glass beads, which are braided to create these striking necklaces and bracelets.
