Product Description
Japanese Decorative Designs 2020 Wall Calendar
Popular during the latter part of Japan’s Edo period, decorative papers were put to fashionable use in handcrafting household accessories, paper dolls, origami boxes, gift wrap, and stationery. The papers, known as chiyo-gami, were often based on the kimono patterns of fabric designers in Kyoto’s Yuzen textile district. Their designers gleaned inspiration from literature, theater, and cultural themes, and the work reflected a reverence for nature and admiration of beauty. Early on, the patternmaking involved hand-inking and pressing leaves. This eventually gave way to mass-production stenciling and woodblock printing, making the papers more accessible and affordable.

Japanese decorative papers are available today in countless historical and modern patterns, ranging from lush florals to symbolic or geometric abstracts. These twelve nineteenth-century woodblock prints are part of Glasgow Museums’ extensive collection of Japanese decorative art.
