Chiyogami Buffet Origami - 45 Sheets


Chiyogami, which means thousand generation (chiyo) paper (gami), was developed in Japan during the Edo Period (1603-1867). The fashionable kimono textiles being produced in the Yuzen area of Kyoto inspired the papermakers to produce small-scale paper imitations intended for use on dolls and tiny household items, such as tea tins. Many of the patterns contain highly symbolic imagery, such as cranes for long life and plum blossoms and pine boughs for beauty and longevity.
