■What is a Craft Band?
Craft bands (paper bands) are made by making strings and pasting them together flat to form a band, and are said to have originated in Japan. They are made from environmentally friendly recycled paper such as milk cartons. The craft bands used in this project are all made of recycled paper bands produced in Japan, which are durable despite being made of paper and can be woven in a variety of ways.
