The design is stenciled on using a dye resist technique - almost exactly the same process as making cloth for traditional Japanese clothing. 

The paper is subsequently treated with Konnyaku, a starchy substance which adds water resistance and strength to the paper so that it resembles cloth to the touch.

The paper is then crumpled up to give a pleasing uneven surface.

Uses - bookbinding, interior design, framing.  

Size - 39 x 46 cm, 15 x 18 inches
