The Japan Foundation (JF) produced the new line of original goods called “Katagami” based on the stencil designs in the catalog of “Katagami - Paper Stencils and Japonisme”, an exhibition held at Maison de la culture du Japon à Paris (The Japan Cultural Institute in Paris). The “Katagami” series have two products: JF original deli bag and JF original personal set. These are suitable for daily use as well as for souvenirs for foreigners.

What is Katagami?
The art of paper stencils, called katagami, has been handed down in Japan as a core technique in stencil dyeing. It is not widely known, however, that in the nineteenth century katagami were exported through world expositions and other occasions to Western Europe, where their motifs had a great impact on craft designs and decorative art.
