Himo makes sense as the 2 cord holes in a netsuke are called the himotoshi.

Hello,

the best person to contact about Inro cord is probably Norman Sandfield

Nicholas is correct; if you have questions about Himo cord, or wish to obtain quality product, the person to contact is Norman Sandfield, who is listed on our Dealer Page. I have repeatedly referred people to Norman, who have sourced Himo cord for various pieces and en suite ensembles which they were creating.
