Our Unique Silk
Cord Straps

Our gradation silk cord strap stands as a testament to exceptional craftsmanship. Achieving the delicate color gradation requires advanced techniques from experienced artisans. This involves precise dyeing of each silk thread in varying color ratios before weaving.

Creating a camera strap with symmetrical gradation patterns posed a significant challenge, especially when hanging from the neck. However, we crafted this unique item after years of dedication and experimentation.

We pioneered encasing a silk core string within the traditional Hira-Karagumi weave, known for its durability and density. The result is a strap with enhanced strength, an oval cross-section, and a comfortable, gentle feel around the neck, ensuring a stress-free user experience.
