Kumihimo braiding is a traditional Japanese craft that is quick to learn and fun to do! Many kinds of yarn, cord or string can be used to create interesting braids for jewellery (or other uses, such as bag handles or in creative textile art, etc). It is a wonderful craft to do at home, or to take travelling, as it is lightweight and uses few tools.
