Tsuda Mizuhiki "knot" Awaji Knot Kaga Mizuhiki Coaster
This is a coaster with an "Awaji" knot mizuhiki by the Tsuda Mizuhiki brand, "knot". The mizuhiki thread mixed with gold and silver threads brings a brilliant look to the dining table.
Awaji knot is the most common knot used in mizuhiki and is also known as an abalone knot. The left and right loops are tied together, and when you hold both ends and pull, the knot becomes even stronger, meaning that you want to have a long-lasting relationship with the recipient. It is used for both congratulations such as weddings and condolences.
To clean, wipe it lightly with a soft cloth dampened with water and dry it well. Mizuhiki, which has a Japanese paper core, will return to its original strength by drying thoroughly even if it absorbs moisture.
This item is small but full of the goodness of traditional Japanese craftsmanship.
"knot" is the brand of Tsuda Mizuhiki, a long-established company that originated Kaga Mizuhiki. Because the spelling and pronunciation of knot and not are similar, the name was given with the meaning of being different from traditional mizuhiki and not the same as before. The brand creates items that will appeal to a wider generation, such as modern colors and small items that can be easily incorporated into everyday life.
Tsuda Mizuhiki is a brand run by the descendants of Tsuda Sokichi, the founder of "Kaga Mizuhiki".
Tsuda Sokichi was the first in Japan to create three-dimensional mizuhiki craftwork and folded forms for betrothal gifts and special envelopes for monetary gifts, which until then had been flat. Kaga Mizuhiki elevated mizuhiki to an elegant and artistic chic and popularized it in the modern world.

ABOUT TSUDA MIZUHIKI "knot"
"knot" is the brand of Tsuda Mizuhiki, a long-established company that originated Kaga Mizuhiki. Because the spelling and pronunciation of knot and not are similar, the name was given with the meaning of being different from traditional mizuhiki and "not" the same as before. At the root of this naming is their confidence that the essence of mizuhiki will never change.
It expresses their strong desire to pass on the tradition and culture of mizuhiki while designing items that can be accepted by a wider generation, such as modern colors and small items that can be easily incorporated into daily life.
About KAGA MIZUHIKI
Around 1915, Tsuda Sokichi (the first generation of Kaga mizuhiki) of Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture, developed mizuhiki string craft into a formative knotting technique by creating a three-dimensional folded form of Japanese paper that had previously been a flat design. Ume Tsuda, the second generation, inherited the technique and established Kaga mizuhiki craftsmanship as a definitive art form. The company has now been passed down to the fifth generation, and continues to evolve while preserving and passing on the true essence of mizuhiki.
