Nimai Kourai Gumi book and software

Kumihimo: Nimai Kôrai Gumi, A step-by-step guide to mastering pick-up braids on the Taka-dai.

This book covers a brief history of Kumihimo, describes several of the looms, then focuses on a specific type of braid made on the Taka-dai loom: the pick-up braids ‘Nimai Kôrai Gumi’.
The author’s step-by-step instructions and exercises have been developed to make pick-up braids accessible to beginner braiders. The double layer braid structure is clearly illustrated with graphics and links to videos (with QR codes to scan).

An interactive web application is provided with this book, to guide the reader through the design and execution of a pattern row by row.

All exercises in the book are available in the app.
New features and fixes will be applied automatically.
