This listing is for a pair of haori himo ties as shown. We put "Taisho" in the name because the turquoise and magenta color combination was quite popular in the Taisho Period (1912-1926). This little gem has four narrow round braids joined all along the length and is the same front and back.

We pre-tie each pair and will attach rounded clasps (as shown in the last photo) to make attaching them to the haori loops easy-peasy-Japaneasy. The knot can be easily untied if you would like to knot it a different way.

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 ideas.

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.
