Plum Blossoms Button Japanese Chiyogami Paper by FromJapanWithLove

Media_httpimg3etsysta_xdriv

These are gorgeous! There are 5 buttons each with gold plum blossoms on a black background. Each one is handmade by me using fabulous chiyogami paper and aluminum buttons. I applied multiple coatings of lacquer. Even though these are sealed, they are made from paper and therefore should only be used on items that don't need to be washed. They would be perfect for decorating bags, collages etc. You could also use them to make hair accessories, magnets etc.

They measures about 2.5cm wide. You will receive the set in the pictures.

Chiyogami has a long past but today the decorative patterns are silkscreened onto machinemade sheets of paper that is a mix of kozo ( a deciduous tree indigenous to Shikoku and Kyushu Islands in Japan) and sulphite (sulphite is used to keep the price reasonable). To create 1 piece of gorgeous chiyogami, a sheet of paper is silkscreened by hand with each individual color. Between applications of color, the sheets are dried on racks. You can imagine how time consuming and difficult it must be to line up each color in relation to the pattern!

Vintage Japanese Stencil Family Crest Kamon by vintagefromjapan

Media_httpimg0etsysta_jmced

This was an amazing find. They are from the "昭和" "showa period" . The "showa" period is from 1926-1989 but these are at about 25-30 years old . This is called "型紙" or "katagami". This is a stencil that was used to make "kashigata" (for more information on "kashigata please see below).

This is really gorgeous! The shape is that of a "kamon" which means a family crest (which crest we don't know). There are no set rules in the design of a kamon. It most commonly consists of a roundel encircling a figure of plant, animal, man-made, natural or celestial objects, all abstracted to various degrees. Religious symbols, geometric shapes and kanji were commonly used as well. These symbols are often found in logos of stores (which help to identify what they sell), sushi restaurants, and on packages of food to lend an air of elegance. Senbei (Japanese crackers) and other traditional Japanese sweets may also use one.

This one is made from paper-but not flimsy normal paper....this is wonderful thick Japanese paper and it is in fabulous condition.

This stencil could be used but it would also be fabulous framed and hung on a wall.

The stencil measures about 9 x 9.5 cm.

More information on "kashigata" (the sweets made from the molds that were made using the stencils).

In the past, when a person died, it was expensive to give flowers or fresh food so, people made sweets (these are made from soy flour, rice flour and sugar) in the form of flowers, fish etc. These items were then placed on the "butsudan" (family shrine found in the house) for the dead person.

The sweets was also used for holiday celebrations, tea ceremony etc. These are for decoration only-they are never eaten.
