greeting envelope with mizuhiki

Sale price Price

The main decoration of the noshi-bukuro gift envelope is the intricate mizuhiki pattern of beautiful threads.

In Japan, thin colored cords are used for mizuhiki knots since the Heian era (IX-XII centuries). Those cords are woven from long strips of painted Japanese washi paper and covered with a special starch paste. Mizuhiki is a good luck knot woven in the shape of a plum blossom - a wish for prosperity and longevity.

The color of the envelope and the shape of the mizuhiki will come across randomly.
