Ayatake-dai: Narabi kamakura (3)
August 3, 2009
I include this scan of three ayatake-dai braids done a long time ago in honour of a recent gathering of British braiders, organised by the UK Braid Society, who focussed on the ayataka-dai/ayatake-dai braiding stand and its braids.
These examples were done in Praslon commercial weaving cotton and the result is about an inch wide. More on the braiding structures later, but suffice they all come from the ‘blue book’ by Sakai and Tada!
