So Japanese

21 Mar

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well.

Today I’d love to show one of our products.


(You can see more details at Products page.)

These stickers are really beautiful and pretty. The stickers are made of Japanese style paper called “Washi”.

*Washi (和紙?) is a style of paper that was first made in Japan. Washi is commonly made using fibers from the bark of the gampi tree, the mitsumata shrub (Edgeworthia papyrifera), or the paper mulberry, but also can be made using bamboohemp, rice, and wheat. Washi comes from wa meaning Japanese and shi meaning paper, and the term is used to describe paper made by hand in the traditional manner.Washi is generally tougher than ordinary paper made from wood pulp, and is used in many traditional arts. OrigamiShodo, and Ukiyo-e were all produced using washi. Washi was also used to make various everyday goods like clothes, household goods, and toys. (from Wikipedia)

Washi is traditional paper but these stickers’ design is very modern and pop.

Look at the stickers on the left. You can see the print of bows. That is an old way to tie ropes or laces around wooden boxes in Japan. I don’t expect you to use wooden boxes to carry aroud things nowadays, but you can use them on the envelope instead like sealing wax.

One more feature I’d like you to see is the pattern of the stickers. They look like lovely Kimono. In any perspective, these stickers are just so Japanese!!!! It’s a great way to dress up a normal, boring and plain envelope!! 

Have a lovely day!!
