Chiyogami is beautiful hand screen printed paper from Japan. The designs were originally based on the bright kimono textiles from Edo period (1603-1868) 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 walls - the creative possibilities are endless.
