Chiyogami is beautiful hand screen printed paper from Japan. The designs were originally based on the bright kimono textiles which the papermakers from the countryside saw on the fashionable wealthier ladies in the larger cities. To create a single completed sheet of Chiyogami, each base sheet is silkscreened with as many colours as there are in that particular pattern - in most cases, four or five colours. The most common uses for these papers are bookbinding, origami, boxmaking, collage and card making, covering furniture and even walls - the creative possibilities are endless!
