Since ancient times, Japan has had a thriving braided cord culture. As is still preserved in the National Museum in Nara, high ranking people used braided cords for armor and sword strings during the Warring States period, such as sokutai (a ceremonial belt) during the reign of Prince Shotoku. There were many wholesale stores specializing in kumi-himo, too. As time went by, more and more machines were used for braided cords, so it became possible to arrange them. In recent years, rubber used for clothing and industrial products is one of them. We produced a bag using the rubber left over or discarded from industrial products.
