Kumihimo

Kumihimo is japanese braiding.  Kumi means "coming together" and Himo means "threads".  I was told this was first used by the samurai to bind their armor to thier bodies.  Using a braiding disk with 8 slots, and 7 strands, my students made cool friendship bracelets.  a great website for 16 strand kumihimo is http://www.homemade-gifts-made-easy.com/ .
