Our Flagship Book!!
This full length (88 pages!) book is a fact-filled guide to making braids, both plain and beaded, using the modern handheld Kumihimo looms (such as the KumiLoom). The instructions take you through the entire journey from the heritage of kumihimo through finished projects.
Using inexpensive, fun, and colorful yarns or cords, you can create lovely decorative braids with ease on a portable loom small enough to fit in a purse, such as the wonderful KumiLoom we carry!
