***NOTE: THIS PATTERN IS FROM LAST YEAR'S PATTERN COLLECTION. IT IS IN STOCK AND READY TO SHIP NOW BUT IF ORDERED WITH ANY NEW PATTERNS IT WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL THE NEW PATTERNS ARE AVAILABLE.
This listing is for one FULL SIZE SHEET of paper (25"L x 38"W)*
Please note that this paper does not have the "mimi" natural rough edge like some of our other papers do, as the kozo mulberry fibers have been machine pressed to give a consistent thickness and texture. The artwork is still hand-silkscreened layer by layer as with all our other papers.
Our Contemporary Blooms chiyogami yuzen washi pattern is a chic, modern design featuring branches of large, bold plum blossoms in shades of pink and white against a black background that really makes the flowers pop.
Each color layer of the design is hand-silkscreened in Japan by artisans on to a thick, fibrous mulberry paper (called kozo).
The word "washi" (和紙) literally translates to "Japanese paper", 和 “wa” meaning “Japanese” and 紙 “shi” meaning “paper”.
Chiyogami (also sometimes referred to as Yuzen) washi is a traditional Japanese art form of silkscreening patterns color by color on to kozo paper; and steams from kimono designs in the Edo period.
Our papers' sturdy, fabric-like quality makes it ideal to work with for all sorts of projects. Chiyogami yuzen washi is great for scrapbooking, cards, jewelry making, weddings, or anything else you can think of!
*size may vary slightly as each maker may use different size base paper or silk-screen. Please contact us if you would like to know the exact measurements of a certain pattern.
