story

  1. A new shape that utilizes the technology of traditional crafts Iga Kumihimo
  2. Added a function to prevent static electricity by incorporating a special thread into a colorful braid.
  3. Easy-to-grip size and 3 color variations, easy to use in any style.

Nice to meet you, my name is Matsushima Braid Shop.

We have been manufacturing Iga Kumihimo, a traditional craft, for 90 years since our founding.

Iga Kumihimo is mainly used for Japanese-style obi-tightening and haori strings.

However, as people's lifestyles change and the demand for obi-tightening and haori strings decreases,

It is essential for us to discover new possibilities for braids,

This time, we have developed a new product as a new "shape" using the traditional technology of Iga Kumihimo.

Iga Kumihimo static elimination key ring

"Static electricity" that almost always occurs when it gets cold

Many people don't want to be snapped when opening a car or front door.

We tried and errored whether there was an easy way to solve such a problem using braids.

We have developed this "Iga Kumihimo static elimination key ring".

Mechanism of static electricity

Needless to say, the point of this key ring is that it "prevents static electricity".

Static electricity is generated by attracting electrons on the other side by charging clothes with electricity due to rubbing of cloth due to walking, etc., and approaching a conductive material such as a doorknob in that state.

The key ring is mixed with a special "electric thread" called conductive thread.

By grasping the braided part, the electrons accumulated in the body are discharged into the air through this conductive thread.

It is possible to prevent static electricity.

It is very difficult to balance the content of conductive yarn during development,

Because it is necessary to stabilize the functionality without breaking the design that seems to be a braid.

After repeating the trial production over and over again, this product was finally completed .

About Kumihi Iga

Iga Kumihimo is made of silk thread, mainly gold and silver thread, and is assembled into a string with delicate beauty using traditional braids such as square stand, round stand, and hill. It is an indispensable craft for Japanese clothing, such as "tightening".
Its origin is said to date back to before the Nara period, and it was initially used as a string for warp rolls and Buddhist and sacred tools. The climate of the Iga area was suitable for sericulture and it was close to Kyoto, which is the center of kimono culture, so it developed as an industry in earnest from the middle of the Meiji era.

Especially famous is the hand-assembled string on the hill, which accounts for most of the national production.

It has been designated as a traditional craft designated by the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry since December 15, 1976.

"Tradition" + "Innovation"

Matsushima Kumihimo has been making Iga Kumihimo, a traditional craft, for 90 years.

Braiding starts with "twisting" and "refining" , then "thread splitting", "dyeing", "warp", "braiding work", etc., and is manufactured by repeating about 20 steps of man-hours until the final inspection work.

The times have changed in the production of braids that have been made by human hands, and of course the hand-knitting technology is of course.

By introducing a dedicated machine (string making machine), we have made use of the traditional hand-knitting technology up to that point to realize sizes and costs that cannot be achieved by hand- knitting, improving production efficiency and stabilizing quality. ..

We value tradition and evolve it according to the times.

We will use hand-assembled and machine-assembled properly, and while putting the soul of craftsmen into it, we will manufacture products that match the times and provide good products to our customers.

I think that is the strength and charm of our shop.

This "Iga Kumihimo static elimination key ring" is made by our shop, which has been manufacturing braids through trial and error for many years.

What is manufacturing that suits the present era?

What is of positive value while feeling familiar with tradition?

It is a product that was developed by thinking about the above and coming up with ideas.

Use scene

As the name suggests, "Iga Kumihimo static elimination key ring"

It can be used as a key ring to be attached to keys of homes, cars, motorcycles, etc.

It can also be used as an accessory for bags.

There are three color variations: red, navy, and brown.

In addition, the design is finished in a size that is particular about traditional texture, texture that fits in the hand, and ease of holding.

Not too plain and not too flashy. The simple and luxurious design makes it a gem that you won't get tired of, and the more you use it, the more it tastes.

Product Specifications

Size: Approximately 15 cm in length (including brass part)

Thickness: Approximately 1.5 cm

* Evidence has been obtained for static elimination performance, but only when the braided part is touched by hand. There is no guarantee that 100% static electricity will be prevented.
