Di-Chiri 15cm 40 Sheets

  • $15.40

Chiri means leftovers in Japanese, and it refers to the bits of the dark outer bark of the kozo plant branches which are left in the vat during the paper making process. Because it was viewed as inferior (i.e. not completely cleaned of the bark remnants), Chiri paper used to be used for wrapping vegetables in the old days. Di-Chiri is fairly thin and crisp which means that it folds well. The Di-Chiri is the same color on both sides (there is no reverse side) and is embedded sparsely with bits of kozo (mulberry) bark. Each package of Di-Chiri has 40 sheets and is 15cm (6") square. There are 5 colors: caramel, gold, grey, green, and brick. Each package has 8 sheets of each color.

We personally select all of the papers in the Paper Jade Exclusives category. They are cut and packaged to our specifications. You won't find these selections anywhere else!
