Chiyogami Japanese paper, golden seigaihas over black
Chiyogami paper, golden seigaihas over a black background
Japanese chiyogami paper with a graphic motif of waves (seigaiha) in gold effect over a black background. On the Chiyogami papers, golden colour brings a tridimensional effect, due to the variable reflection of light according to the direction in which the sun light touches the paper.
In the designs, silk-screen printed exclusively with metalized pigments over a homogenous monochromatic background, this effect is accentuated even more, also adding “movement” to the motif.
This motif is a symbol of good fortune if you want to tell someone “I wish you good luck forever”. The eternal return of the waves to the shore makes reference to the eternal duration of your good wishes.
The washi paper made of long fibers is very flexible and resistant. It is machine made with kozo and sulfite fibers. Silk-screen printed later by hand in so many steps with colors.
