This mesmerising invention by kumihimo artist and engineer Makiko Tada creates incredibly strong braids, which are being used in some cases (with carbon fiber coating) as a replacement for metalwork, as the braid's tensile strength doesn't fatigue like metal.

To see examples of Tada's beautiful handwork with both traditional kumihimo and modern interpretations, visit her blog here:
