Katagami Kimono Stencils

Katagami Kimono Stencils

Japanese Katagami are stencil patterns for dying textiles used for printing Kimonos. These antique Katagami's were designed during the Meiji era in Central Japan. They are made of two or more layers of handmade mulberry paper laminated together and waterproofed with persimmon tannin.

Katagami printing uses a technique called resist dye where a paste is applied to the fabric with the katagami before dipping in ink.  The open space on the katagami will be negative in the printed design. 

We also have a store on Red Bubble where we sell products with our Japanese Katagami designs.
