About machine weaving kumihomo
You might think that machine weaving can be mass-produced.
However, the machine weaving of kumihimo is quite precious nowadays, and there are only a few factories in Japan.
As a matter of fact, the amount that can be woven in one day is limited.
The maintenance is also done by the factory workers themselves.
It is a world of craftsmen more than you imagine.
