Early examples of the use of braiding can be found as far back as the Jomon period (8000-300 BC) but did not become more common place until the Nara period of Japan's history (AD 645-784) where it was a simple form of single loop braiding. Since these times kumihimo has become an integral part to Japanese culture and has been used in a functional and decorative way to lace up a Samuri and his horses armour. In Japan today kumihimo braids are used to tie haori, jackets, and are used for tying on obi a kimono sash.
