Mizuhiki - Japanese epic macrame

Mizuhiki is an ancient Japanese art of weaving and tying paper cords (washi paper) into elegant and complicated knots, decorations, patterns, or even shapes. It’s kind of like macramé, but more epic.

Some of the mizuhiki pieces are created and used to be used in specific ceremonies (like weddings), and have a very specific symbolism behind them.

Here are some of the examples that I found around the net:


  1. Those are real beautiful. A long way from my mother's old macrame!

  2. Do you know the maker for the work which is in the 5th image down (the one above the silver ship), or perhaps have a link to where you found it?
