Make braids the easy way with the Hamanaka Kumihimo disk
Helen came across these super little braiding disks in Australia a couple of years ago. Made from supple, compressed polystyrene, this simple disk is an excellent aid for braid making. And, you can use them anywhere – even on airplanes! Slots on the disk hold the threads firmly, so there’s no need for weights.
Helen demonstrates braidmaking in a workshop here on the site.
