● The narrowest woven fabric in the world favoured by samurai
Very durable and resistant to stretching, sanadahimo cords came into use during Warring States period (1467-1568) serving as straps for swords and armour. As sanadahimo cord is woven on a loom, it is called “the narrowest woven fabric in the world”. With the development of the way of tea, these cords with their infinite possibilities of design were perfect for tying wooden boxes for tea utensils. For 15 generations, Enami has been transmitting precious techniques of sanadahimo (such as yakusokuhimo, or “promise bonds”, for different tea ceremony schools) and carrying out all the processes of the traditional cord making, from yarn dyeing to weaving.
