  • Japanese Chiyogami Paper

    Elegant, ageless beauty of extraordinary Chiyogami and Katazome-shi papers grace the covers of these Hypatia case bindings.

    This exceptional Japanese paper is made in a precise and laborious process of stenciling and resist dying based on traditional kimono-printing techniques using persimmon-dyed kozo as the stencils and a highly skillful process that produces striking beauty in long-lasting color and the unmistakable look of a print truly made by an adept hand.

    The color, quality, and beauty of these papers always take my breath away!
