Disk version is a work that has brought out unusual sales and is still a hot topic without getting cold. Do you know "an item" that appeared frequently during the play?

It is "Braid (Kumihomo)" which is produced mainly in the Iga region of Mie Prefecture. It is a string made by braiding colorful silk and cotton yarn, it is a handicraft item noticed not only in Japan but also from abroad. It has been popularized as a decorative scripture, swords, decorations of clothing, and is still used for clothing for kimono etc. Currently.

"Your name is. There are those who think "what scene was used in the scene?" Actually it is frequently seen everywhere. For example, the scene where the heroine · Miyu Miwa three leaves connect hair tends to appear many times, but the item used for that hair strap is actually a braid. In addition, it is said that Misanga and the unexpected bracelet that the hero, Tachibana Taki wrapped around the wrist of the right arm are braided in a double winding.

Actually, "Braid" which was popular overseas since before

The braid is "Your name is. "It was popular abroad long before the release. Braid which is assembled with patterns of various color shades is reputed as "beautiful", has become a topic overseas for over 10 years and attracted attention. "Your name is. "Has been released more and more braids have become more popular, and it seems that orders are increasing sharply at dealers so that production can not catch up. Due to that influence, we have woven our own braid in DIY, there are many English sites introducing ways to make accessories and straps.

However, when you look at how to make it on such a site, it seems from beginners that there are opinions such as "It's a little difficult?" "Hurdle is expensive" "You can not prepare tools", so that the hand does not reach. For such novices now, sets that can be easily started from the beginning are sold. Even in "Hamanaka shop" dealing with a lot of handicraft articles, you can purchase a plate that makes it easy to make braids without the round table (braid production base) that Miki used.
