Mizuhiki is a thin paper cord made from twisted strips of Washi paper. Once a Washi strip is twisted to the desired thickness and strength, the surface is coated with a special glue to help hold the shape together. Tying Mizuhiki has a significant meaning to gift-giving. It's a symbol of affection, unity, harmony, and warmth. From ancient times, Mizuhiki was tied to packages and gifts for wishing for good luck as well as symbolizing a strong relationship and connection with others. For this reason, it's often used as accessories for gift packages and monetary envelopes, as well as fashion items such as hairpieces, earrings, necklaces, etc.
