Katzome-Shi literally means stencil-dyed (katazome) papers (-shi). Developed during the 20th century in Kyoto, based on traditional kimono printing techniques, Katazome-shi is still made there today. These richly coloured papers are printed by hand, one colour at a time, using persimmon-dyed kozo as the stencils, and aided by paste and "Kojiro" (soy bean juice), the pigments absorb deeply into the paper to produce long-lasting colour.

Chiyogami inspired by textile and kimono patterns which include symbolic and seasonal motifs
