Japanese Katagami is a stencil pattern for dying textiles used for printing Kimonos. This antique Katagami was designed during the mid or late Edo period (1860) to early Meiji (1900) in Central Japan. It is 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 a negative space in the printed design.
