Synopsis : The literal translation of Kumihimo is 'the gathering of threads', although the name can be applied to all forms of Japanese braiding. In this original and fascinating title, the author uses his years of experience to unlock the secrets of the closely guarded world of the Taka Dai - a form of Kumihimo in which single- and double-layered flat braids with a twill structure are made using a high-stand frame. This book covers: The history of Kumihimo; Equipment, materials and methods; Single-braid designs; Edged single-braid designs & double-edged designs; Step-by-step instructions; Easily accessible designs
