Showen Kumihimo Silk Strap
Traditional Ayakorai pattern

The beautiful, traditional Japanese silk craftwork of Kumihimo is reborn

The Ayakorai design, which incorporates a vertical stripe “Aya” pattern using Showen Kumihimo’s bespoke braiding techniques from Kyoto, is now available as a Knot strap. Since watchstraps require a greater width than other braided crafts, the product took a full year from the initial conception of the design to its final completion. Through a process of original research and development, as well as the adoption of a special braiding format, we have succeeded in creating a strap that is 18mm wide and only 2mm thick. The strap comes in a total of eight different color variations, with a sophisticated, beautiful aesthetic suitable for both men and women, whether for work or leisure. Now this pure Japanese style textile strap can adorn your own wristwatch.
