Japanese Braiding

Japanese Braiding

The Marudai (Round Stand) is the most common and versatile piece of equipment used to produce Kumihimo.
It consists of a round top surface known as the Kagami (Mirror) with a central hole, supported by 4 legs connected to a base.
The stand is used with weighted bobbins and counterbalance bag containing weights.


Other accessories include:
Chopstick, to secure the braid whilst work is not in progress.
S-Hook, to attach weight bag to warp threads.
Warping Posts, used in the preparation of warp threads.


Traditionally, the stand and bobbins are made of smooth close-grained wood.
Alternatively, a lower cost Acrylic version will function just as well.
