Japanese design accessories from Australia

Mizuhiki (水引) art is a traditional Japanese art, using mizuhiki paper cord which are knotted into shapes. The Mizuhiki cord is created from paper that is tightly wound, starched to give it stiffness, and then coloured. Therefore although it is made of paper, Mizuhiki cord is very light and strong. These colourful cords are commonly used to decorate money envelopes for special occasions such as engagement & weddings. happy JP designs import Mizuhiki cords from Japan and most of our Mizuhiki cords are wrapped with fine coloured thread, so it doesn't look like made of paper. Tying knots has lots of symbolized meanings, such as "tie the knot" "heart to heart" "appreciation of your kindness" "congratulations" and so on. Az the owner of happy JP designs knots by hand, one by one, with the wish people who wear these items will be "happy"
