Un-Cut Sheets of Laminated Paper
newsletter Signup.png
The decorated sheets below are of the highest quality Japanese handmade paper, the type used in Japanese currency. It’s very durable–so durable that it is used by the finest weavers in their exquisite artistic creations.
   The metallics are various tints and films laminated to silver leaf, adhered to the paper with real lacquer. Others are of fine-quality pigments brush or dusted over the real lacquer while still tacky.  
   The sheets of cut strips are ready to weave, especially coveted by saganishi weavers. The uncut sheets are ready to be used in any way imaginable.
   Below is just a small sampling of what is available. Inquiries welcome.
I purchased these from a very reputable weaving house in Kyoto through a bankruptcy sale, which is how I am able to offer them at such a low price. The dates on the labels accompanying the sheets range from 1976-1982. In checking on line, sheets of this quality generally run between $250 and $325.

Inventory is limited. Once I’ve sold out, I doubt that I will be able to acquire more.

each sheet is 16” x 11” $25 

Because of the one-of-a-kind nature of these sheets, they are very difficult to represent on line. You are welcome to email me with any inquiries, and I will do the best I can to give clear answers to help you in making your decision.

Below is a random sampling, I simply took the first several on top of the pile…
The items on this page are sheets of handmade paper that have been gold- or silver-leafed. Lacquer is the bonding agent most commonly used and can be seen around the edges of the paper. Some sheets are left with the gold or silver fully exposed. Others have over coatings of lacquer or film to tint or decorate the surface. Click here to watch a brief movie.
