Description

One flat, 9" x 12" [approx.] sheet of Japanese, hand-screened chiyogami... dramatic peonies in full bloom, dove grey with orange centres on an ecru background. Large, all over pattern, flower approximately 2.5" across.

Also known as yuzen, many of the images depicted in these papers are symbolic: cranes for long life; bamboo for flexibility; plum blossoms and pine boughs for beauty and longevity.

Great for bookbinding, scrapbooking, jewelery making, greeting cards, invitations or any other craft projects.

I will ship internationally and will be happy to answer any questions.

If there is something you see that you would like more of or specific colours or patterns, please convo me to see what is available. I am happy to create a custom package!

Please note that shipping via Canada Post is more expensive that USPS. In some instances, twice the cost! Costs are calculated by box size AND weight. If shipping costs far exceed what I am charged at the post office. I will happily reimburse you the difference via paypal.

All albums and books are insured.

Paper is sent via regular post. If you would like to insure and track your paper, there is an additional cost. Just ask for it in your comments section and I will send you a paypal request for that amount.

While shipping from Canada is very reliable... sometimes, packages can be delayed due to weather, customs, etc. Please be sure to order with plenty of time as I can not guarantee exact delivery days.

Additional policies

Important note on quality!!
There are now several manufacturers who replicate Chiyogami using offset printing, a mechanical printing method used to produce large volumes of printed materials at low cost. Usually these papers have most colour layers applied at once, and then the gold detailing is added separately to make it look more authentic.

I stock ONLY the original, hand-silkscreened papers. I believe in the beauty and quality that comes with the handmade print, and support the manufacturers who take the time and effort to continue the tradition. While they may cost a little more, they are worth the difference. I have however seen the lesser quality paper sold at the same if not more than the original!

How can I recognize the real thing?
Intense colour and resistance to fading. The pigment-based inks used in authentic Chiyogami create a distinctively intense colour that stands up well to fading and use.

Colour layers. You can often see or feel the different layers of colour applied on the base sheet.

Paste residue. On the back of each sheet of genuine Chiyogami you will often find a harmless paste residue. This comes from the papers being temporarily pasted to boards as they travel from one colour station to the next.

****Wholesale pricing is available on my spiral notebooks and journals.
