Description
 
This listing is for a pair of himo ties that are looped together, giving a nicely finished look. Not sure if they are leather or pleather, but there are two shades of brown in the finish and the original hooks on each end.

Haori himo are the braided or woven cords that tie together at the front of a traditional haori jacket. They are hooked into the little loops on either side of the front collar that every haori has. Typically six to seven inches long and about half an inch wide, but the variety of designs is quite amazing. Haori himo have many uses even if you don't have a haori jacket: bookmarks, zipper pulls, key chains, and more! (See video below for more examples!)

Haori himo - sometimes referred to as kumihimo - are created on a special loom with a macramé or braiding technique - see the video below on how this is done.
