Paper Keepsake Box$40.00
Made from handmade Nepalese lokta paper, this box is beautifully delicate while still being sturdy. The window is of Japanese chiyogami, developed in the Edo Period (1603-1867) to emulate the fashionable kimono fabrics of that time. Silk-screened by hand, each colour is printed separately, requiring precise registration.
