Designed by Crane&Turtle, hand-printed by Yukio Koizumi.

Karakami is a decorated Japanese paper that gets pasted onto sliding and folding screens.
Its history began in the Heian Era (794 - 1185), originating from China.
It was an honor for us to be able to collaborate with a true “Dento-Kogei-Shi (Traditional Craftsman)”, Yukio Koizumi from the Koizumi Husuma Kakoujo to create the artwork exclusively for Crane&Turtle!

Mieko Murao of Crane&Turtle designed this typography, using traditional Japanese patterns, and Yukio Koizumi made the molded sheets of washi paper and printed on them, one by one. He makes the natural pigments from white sea shells, and uses traditional techniques to apply them on.

This playful alphabet art piece can be used as decorations for your home, office, or shop to upgrade the atmosphere. Koizumi's creation has been displayed at temples, museums, and national buildings in Japan. 

Combine and make your favorite phrase into a one-of-a-kind art and hang it up in your favorite frame!

How to use


*Please note that these are all handprinted and each piece has slightly different printing results. Some prints came out naturally imperfectly (we call it "wabi-sabi") to add characteristics.

*Frames are not included because:
- The size would vary depends on the number of the alphabet you picked.
- It gives you more freedom to present the way you like.
- They also work great without frames because they are paper for doors and have been used without any protections such as glasses or acrylic board. As a matter of fact, you get to enjoy the texture of the Japanese washi paper and pigment better in that case.
