Chiyogami washi is printed with patterns traditionally applied to kimonos, called Yuzen. Yuzen designs created in Kyoto’s textile industry satisfied demands for bright colours and symbolic motifs on clothing during the Edo period in Japan (1603-1868).
Papermakers soon adopted the precise detail and brilliance of these fashionable items for use on paper-based ornaments. “Chiyogami” (-gami meaning paper) became the word for paper decorated with repeated Japanese woodblock-printed patterns. Craftsmen began to use silkscreen printing as a manufacturing method and continue to do so today.
