Japanese Chiyogami Paper, also known as Yuzen Washi Paper, is synonymous with Japanese style and quality. Brilliant and intense color patterns with gold metallic overlays are added onto high quality kozo paper. Inspired by Kimono fabric, each design is painstakingly crafted by artists across Japan. The paper has a texture all of it’s own and is best suited to decorative models where sharp creasing is less important.
Chiyogami (Yuzen) Paper applications are boundless. Originally used for paper dolls and decoration of tins and boxes, Yuzen Paper has now found its way into a variety of arts and crafts such as: collage, bookbinding, origami, jewelry, design, home decor and more.
