ARTISAN & ARTIST ACAM-316G Kumihimo Silk Cord Camera Neck Strap
In order to create a delicate gradation of colours, it requires sophisticated techniques of experienced artisans based on accurate calculation of each silk thread that is dyed in different colour ratios before weaving them.
In addition, it is even more difficult to manufacture a camera strap where the gradation patterns appear symmetrical when the strap hangs down from the neck, hence production was said to be difficult; however after many years of trial and error with the artisans, we have finally realized this item.
A new technique called “Hiramaru-Karagumi” was developed and used to weave this high-quality camera strap with a beautiful gradation of colors. By inserting a core string, also woven with silk, at the core of the “Hira-Karagumi,” one of the traditional weaving techniques that is durable with high density, the weave becomes “Hiramaru-Karagumi”. It further excels in strength, and makes the cross-section of the strap oval, providing a stress-free user experience with a gentle feel around the neck.
The straps are available in 3 colours: Black x Red, Black x Navy, and Black x Khaki. Details were also carefully designed for this item. A new, leather tab with a minimal style was developed as to highlight the special gradation of colors, and a smaller ring was used to make the switching of the cameras more pleasant.
We recommend this high-quality strap that showcases the artisan’s skills in detailed parts, to highly-sensitive Artisan&Artist users so that they can casually incorporate it into their lifestyle.
