The Diva Cord Maker
The Diva Custom Cord Maker is a weaving tool that is so simple to learn, that we say that it is Easy as 123! This weaving method some of you may know as “fill in the gap”. Since techniques usually begin simply and become more complex, I believe that “fill in the gap” is the forerunner of the Japanese braiding method known as kumihimo, which allows you to produce more elaborate and complex braids. A cord made on the Diva Cord Maker looks the same as the kumihimo 8-strand round braid made on the marudai loom or on the, more portable, foam round loom. The advantage of using the Diva Cord Maker is that it is faster, it does not require your undivided attention, and you can use thicker materials such as fabric strips and large beads. It suitable for ages 7 – 99!
