Yuzen Paper - Animals/Scenes

Japanese Chiyogami Paper with Animals and Scenes

Bold color patterns and intricate designs with gold overlay are silkscreened by hand on our Japanese Chiyogami Paper, also known as Yuzen Washi Paper. Designs using cranes are extremely popular in Japanese Washi Papers. Cranes represent long life, good fortune and fidelity in Japanese culture. These elegant creatures are represented in many Yuzen papers for that reason. Other animals such as koi fish (representing faithfulness) and butterflies (representing souls of the living and dead) also find there way into many designs bringing both beauty and meaning to the project.

Chiyogami (Yuzen) Paper applications are boundless. Originally used for paper dolls and decoration of tins and boxes, Yuzen Paper has now found its way into a variety of arts and crafts such as: collage, bookbinding, origami, jewelry and more.
