Balls were made from kumihimo as were waist ties as were little ornamental
knotthings, as were... well, Fujiwara-chama just posted a list of things to
look at. Maybe it's just me, but when I hear someeone's taking up kumihimo,
I just start drooling at the possibility of getting my hands on some unusual
braid for Japanese armour purposes. <G>
- Thanks to Fujiwara-hime and Hiraizumi-dono for the

- I'm not sure about this, so would 4x2 (wrong designation??) or 2/30 silk
