This broach is made from Bright Blue Chiyogami (Yuzen) paper, that has been folded in the traditional Japanese peace crane. The patterning on the paper has a beautiful Gold and Red pattern with wave motifs.

Why is Joji Creations Different?
- We don't Lacquer our Broaches - We RESIN them.

What does this mean?
- Unlike Lacquered broaches our broaches are very durable and are able to stand up to EVERYDAY wear without being ruined, even when worn regularly by children!

How big is it?
- The crane is 7cm (2.75 Inches) from wing tip to wing tip, this makes the broach approximately 3.5cm (1.37 Inches) high and 3.5cm wide (perfect for a statement on your lapel or favourite shirt).

How about the findings?
- Our badge backs are also resined onto our cranes ensuring that they will not fall off.

ALL of our findings are EU standard NICKEL and LEAD FREE then silver plated, making them perfect for people with metal allergies!

What is Chiyogami/Yuzen?
- The names Chiyogami and Yuzen are now used interchangeably to describe beautiful traditional Japanese papers. Yuzen papers originate from the Kyoto textile industry and have elaborate gold details in their patterns while the Chiyogami papers (translated to mean 'thousand generations paper') originate in the Edo period of Japanese history (1603-1868) and are wood-block printed papers. Each piece of paper is made from kozo and sulphate and has a silk-screened base layer with the pattern hand-printed above in multiple layers. Each colour visible on the paper is a separate layer of printing and drying which makes these beautiful papers very labour intensive.

**Even though it has been well sealed it is still not recommended that you leave it sitting in water, as this may damaged it. (They normally survive one or two accidental washing machine trips without any real harm as long as they are dried well)

This item is also available in other colours and origami shapes via the link below but if the colour or style you desire are not available please contact us and we can organise a custom order for you if we can find suitable paper.
