About this title


Unlock the secrets of a beautiful, ancient, and closely guarded Japanese craft. Kumihimo refers to all kinds of braiding; here, the focus is on Takadai, a term for colorful and elaborate single- and double-layered flat braids made on a high-stand frame, with a plain weave and twill structure. With more than 150 photographs, 70 charts, 25 illustrations, and easy-to-follow instructions, this collection offers an ideal introduction for anyone from weavers to embroiderers. Find out about the equipment, materials, and techniques; create color, weave, rep-weave, chevron, and textured patterns, plus braids with decorative edges; and make many designs to turn into scarves, bracelets, and other adornments. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.
