Mizuhiki plays an important role in Japanese culture as a symbol of affection, warmth , and togetherness. Made from washi paper, mizuhiki is a colorful cord that is tied in knots to decorate gifts, especially money. Many knots have a meaning and are used for specific events (engaging, wedding, funeral service, birth, etc). Mizuhiki knots are associated with the Japanese word "musubu" (meaning connection or tying) because tying a mizuhiki knot connects people and ties them together.
