Luscious, vibrantly-coloured Chiyogami papers are hand-printed using the silk-screen technique. In this laborious process, each colour is applied using a separate screen. Sometimes as many as 12 colours, including gold or other metallics, may be used to create a single pattern.
Each full sheet of paper measures 100 by 66 cm. A half sheet would be cut to 50 by 66 cm.
