Chiyogami is Washi paper that has been hand stenciled or printed with traditional Japanese imagery using bright colors and patterns. Appearing during the Edo period, Chiyogami was traditionally used to craft paper object especially dolls. It gained tremendous popularity among origami fans because it offered a great visual presences and was less costly then some of the other Washi papers at the time. It still remains a favorite among folders and adds a richness to any paper craft project.
