About Origami World’s Yuzen Paper
Did you know 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.
These genuine premium Yuzen papers are still made by hand in Japan? The printing of these designs are particularly labour intensive. It involves overlaying each colour by silk screening and 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.
