Small Washi deco Origami
Made with a traditional process beginning with mulberry fibres soaked in river water, the Japanese paper (washi) of Mino in Gifu is some of the best there is.
Classic in writing paper, and room partitions, its soft texture is also perfect for these ‘washi deco’ snow flakes. They can be affixed to windows by spraying on water, and patting them dry.
The paper is made at the Hoki Kobo workshop in Mino, and marketed by Ieda Paper Craft - also based in Gifu. These were designed by Vera Ilyushechkina.
English instructions on the simple method to affix the flakes are included. It is also possible to remove each snowflake and store it for the following year.
2 Origami Motives are included in this pack.
They are 5cm x 5cm and 11cm x 11cm each. The overall pack size is 12cm x 17cm.
The material is washi paper, made in the traditional way, using inner bark from paper mulberry (kōzo) trees.
