|Discover the ancient art of braiding cords, otherwise known as Kumihimo in Japanese. The Kumihimo Plate measures 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches & is also made of 3/8 inch dense foam. The plate produces a round or flat braid. With the Kumihimo Disk ( see Above ) and Plate, you'll be able to create beautiful braiding projects quickly! Both tools are sturdy & will hold the threads firmly as you braid. Because they are portable, you can easily take your projects almost anywhere."
