About Yuzen Paper
Yuzen paper, also known as Chiyogami or Washi paper are made from a base paper consisting of mulberry (kozo) fibres and wood pulp. It is the mulberry that gives Yuzen paper its strength, pliability and resilience.
Yuzen papers are still made by hand in Japan. The printing of these elaborate designs are particularly labour intensive as it involves overlaying each colour by silk screening allowing drying time in between each layer. Sometimes 5 to 6 separate colour overlays are required with the final layer usually gold. The pigment based inks used in Yuzen produce vibrant, rich colours that are durable and not prone to fading.
Given the beauty of these yuzen washi paper, they are now used in many applications, not just for origami. They can also be used in card making, invitations, scrapbooking, photo albums and jewellery.
These are genuine Japanese Yuzen papers made in Japan, they do not have any nasty chemical smells. Most if not all have gold accent finish for added beauty.
