Tenugui Mumbling Vol.117 – Tenugui Money Wrap

Monday, April 29th, 2013
money_wrap_sakura_up1

Japanese traditional style money envelop made with Sakura Tenugui! A Musubi-kiri bow is suitable to use for a wedding or any other celebrations, except a baby shower.

It’s Spring time, season of Graduation and Wedding, and many celebrations are on the way. We have a great gift idea for your family and friends, TENUGUI MONEY WRAP!

In Japan, we also customarily send some money as a gift for celebration, so their family and friends can use it for their future needs. We have a special money envelop, called O-SHU-GI BUKURO (お祝儀袋), means Celebration Envelop. Usually, comes with two parts, a white paper envelop for putting money, and outer wrapping with Japanese washi paper, and then, ties a bow with Japanese traditional strings called Mizuhiki.

Mizuhiki has some traditonal rules; let me explain about Mizuhiki. See the photo below;
mizuhiki_knots

The top one called HANA-MUSUBU, just like a standard bow knot. HANA-MUSUBU can unwind and make a knots in many times, so it uses for the event desired to occur repeatedly, like a new born baby and anniversary.

The middle one called MUSUBI-KIRI. MUSUBI-KIRI was knotted very tightly, and can’t unwind after made a knot, so it uses for the event not desired to occur again, such as wedding, celebration for the recovery. MUSUBI-KIRI is also used for funeral and memorial ceremony, but only uses black and white strings, instead red and white (or other colorful colors).

The last one called AWAJI-MUSUBI, AWAJI-MUSUBI was knotted tightly and many circle layers, wishing a long relationship, so it uses for the event like a wedding or anniversaries as well.

money_wrap_fujiwave_up1

KICHO design with Musubi-kiri bow is a perfect money wrap for Wedding, and any celebrations, except a baby shower.

money_wrap_owl_up1

OWL DESIGN and HANA-MUSUBI is a perfect money wrap for baby gift and graduation, birthday, and any events want to have repeatedly.

Tenugui Money Wrap is made with a half size Tenugui, so can be used as a Handkerchief later, and keep it with a beautiful celebration memory.
Isn’t so lovely idea?
