Made using Chiyogami Paper from Japan. Each sheet is hand silk-screen printed requiring a separate screen that is hand-registered for each colour that appears in a pattern. The technique gives the paper a unique quality, you can sometimes feel and see the different layers of print giving added depth to the pattern.
The inks used on these papers are very light fast and the vibrant colours will last, the paper is also very durable. The shade is made from two pieces of paper and therfore has 2 seams. The shade has hand rolled edges.
