Chitsu kami (Persimmon astringency Paper)

" Chitsu" is a special hard paper that wraps books, especially Japanese books, to protect them. Our Chitsukami is made by applying persimmon astringent, which has a high insect repellent effect, to a thick Echizen Torinoko Paper ( total 4 layer ) by a craftsman. It is used for the Tatou (wrapping paper box) of the paulownia box to put the hanging scroll.
