Mizuhiki is an old Japanese art form used for gift wrapping, in which a decorative paper cord is created by twisting washi paper (called in fact ‘mizuhiki’) and is then hardened with a glue coating. This Mizuhiki knot is shaped like a plum flower, which symbolises luck, tight bonds and the repelling of evil.
This Mizuhiki needle threader is not only gorgeous but also extremely functional for sewing or embroidery. It is decorated with a traditional Mizuhiki braided knot
Push the loop of metal wire through the eye of the needle, then pull a thread through the loop, then pull the needle threader back out of the eye of the needle, drawing the thread with it through the eye. The Mizuhiki needle is 4.2cm long and 2.8cm wide.
Since they are handmade, there are slight differences in size and pattern and due to the characteristics of paper, Mizuhiki may be blurred, but please enjoy it as a texture.
