One of a kind authentic Japanese katagami stencil, once used to create kimono fabrics between 1940 and 1960.
An incredible stencil done almost entirely with a single, tiny round punch tool. All of the outlined hexagon grid as well as the florals inside each were created with tiny dots. The exception is several leaves made with an elongated cut, which makes them stand out and catch the eye.
Each stencil is made from mulberry paper coated wtih persimmon juice for strength and water resistance. Each was uniquely designed and was hand cut by punch or cutting tools and reinforced with a tiny silk screen. Click HERE to view a short youtube video on how these stencils are cut.
