Overview

Dating back 1200 years, at one time kumihimo were fasteners for sutra scrolls and tea caddies. They were used on sword hilts and on monks' robes and court costumes. The braided legacy of Jusuke Fukami [1885-1974], who was designated a living national treasure in 1956, is on display in this small gallery, along with some examples of the traditional tools of the trade. Additionally, braided work from South America and Egypt is included in this private museum.
