Rubber Bands with a Bow

For 2013 Kokuyo Design Award, designer Yu Aso reimagined rubber bands with an ancient Japanese art of knot tying for decorative purposes called Mizuhiki‬. After two years of revisions to refine the design and make the product more foreigner-friendly, these simple but amazing bands will soon be available in packages of seven with four colors for only 460 Yen. Who else can’t wait to buy these cute shoelace-shaped-knot rubberbands?
