Chiyogami Japanese paper, golden large asanoha over black
Chiyogami paper, golden asanoha (large) over a black background
Japanese chiyogami paper with a hemp leaf (asanoha) graphic motif in gold on a black background. In chiyogami papers, the gold lines give a three-dimensional effect, due to the variable reflection of light depending on the direction in which the sun's rays strike the paper. In designs traced exclusively with metallic pigments on a homogeneous monochrome background, this effect is further accentuated, also adding "movement" to the motif.
This motif is a symbol of good wishes: just as hemp is a strong plant, which grows in all conditions, children are often given objects with this motif, with the intention that they will grow up healthy and strong, regardless of the circumstances around them.
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.
