Our kumihimo plate is the Hamanaka Plate created by Makiko Tada and made in Japan. The material is 3/8" (1cm) thick dense foam which holds the threads/yarns securely, keeping consistent tension for even, beautiful braids. Makiko Tada has developed some very contemporary braids for this piece of equipment. Free instructions will be emailed to you after purchase.
Please visit the Books by Subject- Kumihimo Disk and Plate page to see resources on projects for your kumihimo plate.
The plate also comes in a Kit complete with instructions, EZ bobs and thread.
