Get your own paperback copy of Mark Campbell's The Art Of Hair Work, filled with numerous original braid patterns ranging from 16-32 strands. Explore the craft of hairwork through original documents.
Hair work and braiding at its height of sophistication is detailed in this republication of the 1875 edition. Much akin in technique to Kumi-Himo, these braids rely on openness and texture rather than color. Supplemented by material from Godey's Lady's Book from years 1850 - 1859. Should appeal to craft person, historian, jeweler and collector.
