Furoshiki - Karacho
Karacho (Karakamiya Choemon), founded in 1624, is known as the only Karakamiya that has continued uninterruptedly since the Edo period. Karakami, which is made by applying patterns to Japanese paper using woodblocks that have been handed down from generation to generation, is used for sliding doors and wallpaper in buildings.
The exquisite texture of the paper, as if beautiful patterns are emerging from the Washi, is highly valued artistically and has been used in historical structures such as Katsura Rikyu and Nijo Castle, where it has been repeatedly repaired and passed down to the present day. In recent years, the company has also developed new products such as postcards and lighting covers in tune with modern lifestyles.
