Mizuhiki / daki awaji earrings


About This Product

Similar in shape to the traditional Awaji knot, but with a different design. Awaji is a type of Mizuhiki knot. It’s typically used in the context of weddings; when guests give newlyweds a gift, they often give money in a white envelope tied with a traditional Awaji knot. The lines of the Awaji knot form circles around each side, appearing almost like an infinite symbol. This conveys the notion that the newlyweds can be happy and together forever.

Ooie uses this happy vibe to make an earring that can be worn at anytime. No wedding necessary – anytime, any mood, it’s perfect for any occasion.

About Mizuhiki 

Mizuhiki is a traditional Japanese knot. The artist uses Washi (traditional Japanese paper) to form a very thin line by hand, before layering glue on top and waiting for it to dry. Mizuhiki encompasses many different types of knots, and each type (and color) convey different feelings. Mizuhiki, thus, can be seen in many different situations, from weddings to funerals; in all cases, they are a way to convey the sender’s feelings in a subtle and elegant way.

Mrs. Hayashi’s concept is taking Mizuhiki as a base and combining it with modern design to create accessories. She leverages natural materials to form beautiful traditional knots; no matter the season or the occasion, her works are always a good fit.

About ooie

Mrs. Hayashi, founder of ooie’s accessories line, was born in Nagano. Her family has been making Mizuhiki for generations. Growing up in this environment, Mizuhiki became a very normal part of her life; while many Japanese people see Mizuhiki as specific to special occasions, Mrs. Hayashi came across them every day.

After Mrs. Hayashi had her own children, she noticed more and more opportunities growing in Nagano. She decided to start a new accessories line within her family’s ooie brand, using traditional Mizuhiki skills to “paint the seasons” and create accessories that reflect the nature around her. Mrs. Hayashi seeks to take these traditional skills and elevate them to the next level.
