Braided cord


組紐(くみひも)とは細い絹糸や綿糸を組み上げて作ります。日本でも古来から伝わる技法で、解けず柔軟性があり装飾性に富んでいます。

A braided cord is a complex structure or pattern formed by interlacing three or more strands of flexible material such as textile yarns. Compared with the process of weaving, which usually involves two separate, perpendicular groups of strands (warp and weft), a braid is usually long and narrow, with each component strand functionally equivalent in zigzagging forward through the overlapping mass of the others.
