Shimenawa are lengths of rice straw or hemp rope used for ritual purification in the Shinto religion of Japan and used to define sacred space. Shimenawa vary in diameter from a few centimeters to several meters, and are often seen festooned with ‘shide’ – traditional paper streamers.

Shimenawa can help cleans and start a year with fresh mind and energy.


We will make Shimenawa which is a traditional Japanese decoration for New Year.

Make an ornament with Mizuhiki string & decorate Shimenawa with fresh greenery.
