Kumihimo, Japanese braiding technique

Kumihimo is a 1000 year old technique from Japan to make cords. It is easy and the result is very beautiful especially when you use satin cord. I made the cords for these two little bags this way. In the Netherlands there is a Kumihimo package for sale at Pipoos incl. a little booklet, some cords and paper discs with instructions to follow. I think children will like it also.
