The karakumidai is used for making twined braids constructed of diamond shapes. The braid was developed during the Heian period (794 to 1192) and marked the creation of the first truly Japanese braids rather than reproductions of Chinese and Korean techniques that had been seen up to that time. A sash called hirao were made for imperial formal court occasions and ceremonial Bugaku and Shinto dance costumes, still seen today. The braids are very complicated to make.
Simple, cheap (under $10) but beautiful cardweaving loom.
