Soft patterns unique to Japanese paper dyeing

Adorable elephant 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.

Kindness comes through

Overall smooth and gentle touch. The rust color of the edge is also rich in shades and bleeding, and it tightens the white plate. The cute elephant with its plump form and the washi-dyed bird on the back will make you smile.
