Hello, I’m Rie Yomura. I am a mother of three children from Japan, currently living in Switzerland. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved handcrafts, and became a fan of (fell in love with) Kamihimo paper band when I found it in Japan. I graduated from college with an architecture major and I found it very interesting that Kamihimo has infinite/unlimited possibilities as a crafting material!
Though Kamihimo crafting culture has bloomed for about two decades in Japan, it is still new and unknown to the rest of the world. I was very surprised that Kamihimo is almost impossible to find at many craft shops despite the popularity of other Japanese craft materials like Origami, masking tapes, and Washi papers. What motivated me to introduce Kamihimo crafts are the facts that it is eco-friendly material yet durable enough to sit on it as a seat of unique designed chair.
I created this site to introduce the Kamihimo culture to the world. You may think Kamihimo crafts is too difficult, but don’t worry! I try to share a lot of beginners recipes that are easy but fun to start.
You can purchase varieties of Kamihimo imported directly from Japanese manufacturers at the online shop. (Ship out to you from Switzerland)
I hope my site and blog posts will reach and inspire as many people as possible to enjoy Kamihimo crafts! Thank you for reading this til the end and support my site.
