Paper stencil for kimono or futonji which are made of wash, Japanese handmade paper. The first paper stencil resist dyeing appeared in the Kamakura and Nanboku-cho period (1185~1392). It was applied for many items later, such as samurai's kamishimo(komon), civilian's kimono, No-drama costume and so on. Mino-gami (handmade paper made in Mino in Gifu Pref.) is used for the stencil. Two to four sheets of paper made from kozo (paper mulberry) tree are pasted together with paste mixed with kaki-shibu (persimmon juice). Shiroko in Mie Pref. is the main product place of kata-gami which is called Ise kata-gami. This one is painted with urushi on the surface for waterproof and has silk gauze between sheets of paper for the patterns not to come apart. In excellent condition. The first half of the 20th century. 35cm x 43cm
