Beautiful and exceedingly rare Chiyogami Katazome stencil-dyed paper uses a time consuming starch-resist printing method. Katazome is a Japanese 15th century traditional print methodology. Modern printing techniques have now mostly replaced this completely handmade and very time consuming printing process. Handmade Japanese Chiyogami paper is made with Durable High Quality Kozo Fiber. The Front/Back Covers Feature the Classic Japanese Decorative Emblem of Kiku Chrysanthemums, an Auspicious symbol for Longevity and Rejuvenation. This Classically Stylized Kiku Chrysanthemum print is from the Edo period, found in traditional Kimono fiber designs. This Kiku design features Cinnamon Brown Toned Chryanthemums with a Black Vine Arabesque Flourish on a White Background. Inside Front/Back Covers in matching tones, Feature a Japanese Rhombus Geometric Design, symbolizing clarity and wisdom that transcends beyond the everyday into the spiritual realm.
