Japanese traditional art

What is MIzuhiki?

Mizuhiki is a Japanese traditional art that has been passed down from generation to generation in Japan since even before the Edo period (1603–1867). It has been used to decorate presents and envelopes of gift money on ceremonial occasions.

Mizuhiki is made from Washi (an ancient Japanese paper) that is tightly twisted, starched to be stronger, and covered with silk thread. Therefore, it is very delicate and vulnerable to friction and water.

Because mizuhiki is made of paper, it weighs extremely little. You might forget they are on!

About the maker

Hello! I’m from Japan and a mom of three who lives in Richmond – near Vancouver, BC.
It’s been several years since I became passionate about Mizuhiki. In addition to homeschooling my children, I enjoy making Mizuhiki in my spare time.
