A set of nine squares of usable stencils salvaged from vintage Japanese katagami stencils. These "carved paper" beauties are little works of art you can use to create art on paper or fabric.

In this set you'll get nine different stencils, all small repeat designs. Each piece is approximately 8.5" x 8.5". Each kit is randomly selected out of our current inventory. Photos are examples only, yours may look different.

See last the photo for some amateur results using stencil paint. (The design in the print example is for demonstration only and is not included.)

Katagami are the stencils used to create layers of design on traditional Japanese kimono. Each one is cut by hand, either with a free-hand knife or a tiny punch tool. They are made from one or two sheets of heavy washi paper and covered with persimmon tannin to add strength and moisture resistance. Nowadays, more durable plastic versions are used, but these older paper stencils are often still usable in addition to being works of art. See the video below for how katagami are made and used.
