Kumihimo: The Art of Japanese Silk Braiding by DOMYO
January 28 - March 6
Through March 6, 2022
Los Angeles, California
This touring exhibition, the first in the U.S., explores the history and art of Japanese silk braiding, or kumihimo (“braided cords”). Produced by Yusoku Kumihimo Domyo (Domyo–a Tokyo-based company that has been making braided silk cords by hand since 1652), the exhibit presents the evolution of kumihimo over centuries. The historical survey introduced some of the most important braiding techniques and tools, plus innovative ways kumihimo is used today. Extensive information is available online.
