This listing is for a pair of vintage haori himo ties that were overdyed in a natural indigo vat. They were originally white and had some blemishes, but those were covered with the dye. We don't get indigo blue himo ties very often so were happy that this process created such a nice color. The weave is plain and flat, but the color carries the day!

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.

They are 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 macrame or braiding technique - see the video below on how this is done.
