$ 2.00 


A flowing blue stream with flowers that have a touch of green in the center.

Katazome-shi literally means stencil-dyed papers. Based on traditional kimono-printing techniques, these elegant bold patterned papers were developed in Kyoto during the 20th century by an inspired soul. Using persimmon-dyed kozo as the stencils and aided by paste and Kojiro (soy bean juice), the pigments absorb deeply into the paper to produce long-lasting color and the unmistakable look of a print truly made by hand.

These papers are typically thinner than Chiyogami papers, as well as more expensive.
