The Filges Braiding Flower Kit provides you with everything you need to start braiding cord in the tradition of Kumihimo. It’s easy to get started and a great craft to take in the car or tuck in your pocket. It’s quite meditative and for children as young as 4-5, with a little help or for grown-ups who want a simple meditative craft.
Developed over 1000 years ago in Japan, this type of braiding is known there as Kumihimo. Kumi means braids and Himo means cord.
This braid flower has 8 slots, which you can weave a string of up to 7 strands. It creates a strong seven-coloured braid and when using rainbow wool it is even more colourful.
The flower is made of 5 mm thick wool felt and include Filges Bioland plant-dyed yarn in 7 colours to get started and instructions.
