Expression of Woodblock

Feeling, created by hand-made


KAMISM has a hundred of woodblock patterns. All patterns are made by hand-made.
Putting the dye and pigment on the woodblock, and gently covering it with the washi papers.
And then rubbing the washi paper with the palm of hand softly.

By tracing each pattern by relying on the feeling of hands,
the gentle warmth and sophisticated feeling are created on the washi, which cannot be expressed by machines.


Woodblock printing

Printing Process

A tool, called as “FURUI”, is used. Putting the pigment on the FURUI,
and moving the pigment to the woodblock.
The volume of the pigment on the FURUI is adjusted for the type of washi papers.
Covering the woodblock with the washi, and then tracing the pattern on the washi
by rubbing the washi with the palm of hand.
It is necessary to adjust the force so that the pattens do not collapse.
It requires craftsmanship experience.
