Japanese Kimono-shaped Coasters

These coasters are made of Japanese Washi paper dyed in the Yuzen technique.

KIMONO: The Kimono is the epitome of Japanese Culture.

YUZEN: Yuzen dyeing is a very famous Japanese technique for the Kimono

WASHI: Washi (Japanese paper) is handmade vegetable fibre. It is very strong and age resistant, full of softness and warmth.

Thank you to everyone for commenting, it certainly makes my day. A pleasure to see everyone of you. Old and New.. Blogging not only opens up the world but gives us new friends.
