Kaminoshigoto works with a handful of top Mino Tesuki Washi artisans to create handmade Mino washi paper products. Mino washi paper is very thin, smooth, and translucent, requiring great skill and care to make. As of January 2018, only five highly skilled members of the Mino Washi Paper Preservation Association are currently able to make this special paper. This specialized skill was declared an important cultural asset of Japan in 1969 and was registered in UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage technique in 2014.
The washi paper is strong and flexible and can be applied to smooth glass or windows. These snowflake decals are a made by creating thin, translucent paper lacework, called Sukashi Washi. To apply, simply spray the surface with a little water and press the decal on. These decals can be peeled off once dry and stored for reuse.
