What's Mizuhiki?

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 its shape. The strands created are strong and flexible, almost wire-like.

Tying Mizuhiki has a significant meaning to gift-giving. It's a symbol of affection, unity, harmony, and warmth. Mizuhiki is often tied to packages and gifts to express wishes of good luck and fortune. It also brings a sense of connection and the wish to tighten the relationship with others. That's why it's often used as an accessory for gift packages and monetary envelopes. Furthermore, fashion items such as hairpieces, earrings, necklaces, etc. also made this symbol ever-present in Asian-inspired designs.
