These gorgeous high quality nesting boxes are truly unique and a definite showstopper. Each nesting box can be used seperately for gifting, holding your precious items or displayed as home décor. They are made from 100% recycled cardboard and covered with Japanese Chiyogami paper. The Chiyogami, traditional, Japanese paper that each nesting box is covered with have bright colors that were originally used for folding small paper objects like dolls or boxes. Every single sheet is a work-intensive hand silk-screen print on white Kozu paper, a typical unprinted frame remains. The enormous variety of patterns and color combinations is inherited from Kimono fabric. Two different groups of papers can generally be distinguished: Komon is the appellation for the single-colored, small and often geometrical patterns (ko = small, mon = pattern, emblem). Yuzen summarizes those patterns being embued with vivid colours and gold or silver pigments. The name is derived from a great fan painter in the Edo period, Miyazaki Yuzen.
