Japanese Paper Writing A Letter. This is hand-silkscreened chiyogami paper. This paper is natural color with black inked writing letters. Please click that picture to enlarge it to check how beautiful this paper is.

This measures 45 x 30 cm. It comes folded in a bag (I bought it this way) and I will package it very carefully so it doesn't get damaged.

Chiyogami has a long past but today the decorative patterns are silkscreened onto machinemade sheets of paper that is a mix of kozo ( a deciduous tree indigenous to Shikoku and Kyushu Islands in Japan) and sulphite (sulphite is used to keep the price reasonable). To create 1 piece of gorgeous chiyogami, a sheet of paper is silkscreened by hand with each individual color. Between applications of color, the sheets are dried on racks. You can imagine how time consuming and difficult it must be to line up each color in relation to the pattern!

This paper is perfect for scrapbooking, card making, origami, collage or any project you can think of!
