A set of three pieces salvaged from vintage Japanese katagami stencils that were slightly damaged from decades of storage. They are still quite usable.

In this set you'll get the three different stencils shown in the photos, all small repeat designs. Each piece is approximately 12-14" x 17-18".

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 sharp and tiny punch tool. They are made from one or two sheets of heavy paper and then covered with persimmon juice 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 videos below on a stencil demonstration.
