Japanese decorative papers reflect the superb craftsmanship, design sensibilities and rich variety of the Edo Period (1630 - 1868). Chiyogami papers are characteristically small dense patterns that were originally wood block prints but are now typically silkscreened.

The overlapping circles pattern first was used in Nara, Japan in the 8th century. These wonderful patchwork variations have a lovely traditional feel in golds, green, reds and a dominant navy blue and white in the center of every circle. Silkscreened on handmade Japanese paper. Ideally suited for bookbinding because of its strength and glueability, it is also excellent for origami, collage paper crafts, lampshades, card making and of course everyone's favorite... holiday wedding invitations.

Please note: Given the delicate nature of fine paper, all flat paper purchases are final sale.
