This book is fantastic for learning how to do kumihimo, especially if you want to use beads as I do. The instructions are very clear and easy to understand and follow. The 'kumihimo maths' for each project are very good and make it easy for you to work out your own measurements etc.

I would definitely recommend this book, its becoming my most used book.

this is and excellent book, it even gives you instruction on how to recognize where you went wrong, very comprehensive and thorough with lots of different projects and techniques to use. It starts at the beginning and takes you through to more advanced braiding. Even if you are and experienced braider it is still a very good manual. Would recommend

Although this book covers the basics it is a lovely book for those who want to move on from the simple form. It is glossy and pretty and inspiring. I just feel with any instructional books that they would be better if, rather than looking like a coffee table book, they should be in a ring backed format to be able to make easy reference to whilst working.

This is the best book on Kumihimo I have come across. The book covers basics through to quite complex techniques with great pictorial step by step instructions. At 96 pages it's also great value for money.
