Description
 
This listing is for a pair of vintage haori himo ties in an ombre dye that starts out as white at the top and deepens to a rich rust color at the tassel ends. The himo is actually two rounded rope braids that are connected and unconnected along the length.

Haori himo are the braided, beaded 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, haori himo come in a surprisingly wide variety of designs.

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.
