The blossoms on this paper are similar to those on the Japanese apricot tree and are incredibly fragrant, smelling like sweet honey.
Chiyogami papers are silk screen printed by hand in Japan. This silk screen process is borrowed from the centuries old tradition of printing Kimonos. There can be as many as 20 colours on each design, each one printed separately and allowed to dry. It is an intricate skilful process that gives rise to this beautifully rich and vibrant paper.
We stock over 70 Chiyogami papers.
