awagami+1 features 4 collections.


awagami+1 has selected 4 golden kamon emblems for use in our new 'kamon' stationery collection. we hope that these 4 kamon exhibit a universal and international appeal due to their sophisticated yet fairly simple aesthetic. 'timeless' is an adjective often associated with many kamon designs as it is a challenge to place them into any particular time period, category and/or era. awagami+1's 4 kamon may be a thousand years old...... but then again, they may have been created only yesterday.

yuzen spring:

"yuzen spring" items feature hand stencil-dyed yuzen papers for their covers. spring's zig-zagging pattern is called "sayagata" while the type of repeat is known as commonly known as "waritsuki". in japan, the sayagata pattern are quite often used for kimono design.

yuzen autumn:

"yuzen autumn" items also feature hand stencil-dyed yuzen papers for their covers this particular motif depicts a flowering plant and expresses the japanese peoples love and respect for nature and the 4 seasons.

syuro (rice straw):

"syuro" items are made with a straw-based paper originally developed as an awagami wall paper ("A-WALL"). syuro features a subtle and organic texture and is one of many of awagami factory's true eco-friendly papers.
