Soft patterns unique to Japanese paper dyeing

Adorable giraffe pattern. A technique called "Washi dyeing" is used, in which a pattern is drawn on Japanese paper and the cut pieces are pasted on the base material to transfer the color. The blue color of the body is dyed with Japanese paper, and the brown and gray parts such as the hands and feet are drawn by hand one by one with a brush. The vague texture will make you feel at ease.
