Description
 

This listing is for a set of usable sections cut from nine different 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 each of the nine patterns shown in the photos, all different geometric grid designs. Each piece will have a solid border on at least one side with the cut stenciled area approximately 10" x 7.5".

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.
