Learn the calming, traditional craft of kumihimo – Japanese braiding – through step-by-step projects.
Kumihimo is the ancient art of Japanese braidmaking; admired for its dual qualities of usefulness and beauty, and associated with both fashion and the samurai. In this instructional book, Jacqui Carey teaches the use of a marudai (round stand) to produce a variety of different types of braids, which can then be used to create countless combinations of colour, texture and material. 

This is a brilliant book for beginners, as it guides you through the steps in an easy to understand step by step technique. The projects are simple but stunning, and include bracelets, necklaces and ties.
Each project can be adapted in size, and I loved the rich tonal colours that were used for each piece.
Beads, ribbons and cords are perfect for these designs, but finer threads can be used to make smaller items. The instructions are accompanied by superb photography, demonstrating each step.
