Mizuhiki Gift Bow
$4.0

Qty

In the US, we may decorate a gift with a ribbon or bow. In Japan, these Mizuhiki cords, tied in simple or elaborate knots and loops, take on that role, adding a special, meaningful touch to a gift. This particular red-and-white Mizuhiki bow comes with a sticker on the back that allows the bow to be stuck onto gift wrap or an envelope. It's the small things that help to make a celebration special!

Product details

Mizuhiki are made from stiff cords of washi paper. The small folded paper is called noshi, and in some cases (though not this one), it wraps a strip of dried abalone!

Some Mizuhiki knots are elaborate, signifying a bond that cannot be broken. They are especially suitable for decorating gifts for newlyweds. Other knots are more simple; they are meant to be tied and untied over and over again. For that reason, simple knots aren't really suitable for weddings, but they are great for events like the birth of a child---an ever-joyful occasion.
