Chiyogami Green Garden Paper

This traditional Japanese paper with its bright colours was originally used for folding small paper objects like dolls or boxes. Every single sheet is a work-intensive hand silk-screen print on white Kozu paper, a typical unprinted frame remains. The enormous variety of patterns and colour combinations is inherited from Kimono cloth. Two different groups of papers can generally be distinguished: Komon is the appellation for the single-coloured, small and often geometrical patterns (ko = small, mon = pattern, emblem). Yuzen summarizes those patterns being embued with vivid colours and gold or silver pigments. The name is derived from a great fan painter in the Edo period, Miyazaki Yuzen.
