Katazome-shi literally means stencil-dyed papers, also referred to as Wazome papers.

Based on traditional kimono-printing processes, these elegant boldly patterned papers were developed in Kyoto during the 20th century. 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 and the unmistakable look of a print truly made by hand. The strength and ageless beauty of these special papers makes them great for book covers and boxes, cards, decorative elements on paper and wood, lampshades or backgrounds for photos.
