Kumihimo is a traditional form of Japanese braiding which involves using cords and ribbons to make bracelets and jewellery. The art of Kumihimo can consist of a variety of braiding techniques and spans back to ancient times, with Samurai once using Kumihimo as laces for their armour. DMC have developed their own designs - perfect for older children's craft ideas.
