Description
 
This listing is for an unusual pair of haori himo. The front side seems to have an almost faux snakeskin or fish scale finish, in red and black. This is surrounded by a pale pink border which continues around the back. Really interesting!

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.
