Kumihimo is a Japanese form of braid-making. Cords and ribbons are made by interlacing strands.

Besides the practical advantages of fastening things efficiently, Kumihimo was used for the belts of the imperial family and the samurai armors as the braided structure developed complex and beautiful forms.

The Kumihimo Society will held an exhibition of Kumihimo works including traditional crafts, industrial braids and advanced composite materials using Kumihimo.

Owing to its 3D and mechanically optimized structure, Kumihimo has recently attracted automobile and aerospace engineers seeking its lightweight, high-strength and energy-absorbing materials.
