Japanese Chiyogami Papers

These exquisite chiyogami papers are meticulously produced by hand.

These small-scale paper imitations were intended to be used on dolls and tiny household items, such as tea tins. Many of the patterns contain highly symbolic imagery, such as cranes for long life and plum blossoms and pine boughs for beauty and longevity. From £12 per sheet.
