Marudai Braiding Stand Sets

Hand made solid maple kumihimo braiding stands and tama (bobbins) for kumihimo.


Our marudai are made of hardwood maple in the USA by American craftsmen. Traditional use of marudai and tama is the classic way to make Japanese kumihimo. Kumihimo disks and plates are a great way to get started, but true kumihimo enthusiasts know the pleasure of working with a premium wood marudai.
