- Chiyogami is a hand silkscreened paper from Japan. Its fibres are longer than many craft papers making it a super flexible material.

- Many of the designs come from traditional Kimono motifs.

- The papers translucent quality makes it ideal for lanterns, lamps and lampshades. As light passes through it the beautiful colours glow.

- Every sheet of Chiyogami is hand printed so each colour is applied separately. This artisan technique is competing in the modern world with machine production however it holds it’s own as far as the finished product is concerned. The quality is much finer, the colours are more vibrant and fade resistant.

- These little lanterns measure approximately 8cm in diameter and stand 14cm high. They consist of the paper covering a translucent plastic sheet letting the light from the LED tealight shine through. (The LED tealight is included with a changeable battery.)

- The artist makes the shades herself in a small studio in Yorkshire.
