Ise KatagamiIse Paper Stencils
The history of Ise Katagami is old, and, about the opening, there are various opinions. It is thought that there was form paper from place drawing senshokujin where illustrator of the Muromachi era uses form for "picture of many artisans" (shokuninzukushie) for last years in the Muromachi era.
When the Edo era began, we were under the protection of Kishu feudal clan which ruled current Wakayama and South Mie and accomplished development led by soft roe, both villages of servant of a Buddhist temple.
Although the history of these stencil papers dates back a very long way, no one is too sure as to actually when they were first made. However, it seems likely that they were already in existence at the end of the Muromachi period (1392-1573) because a contemporary painter called Kano Yoshinobu, depicted someone using a stencil in a painting called Shokunin-zukushi-e.
During the Edo period (1600-1868), the production of Ise Katagami developed with patronage from the Kishu clan over-seeing the areas corresponding to present-day Wakayama prefecture and the southern part of Mie prefecture.
It is these stencil papers which have traditionally been used in the dyeing of kimono cloth with family crests and patterns including those for yuzen, the light summer-weight kimono called yukata and the very fine overall patterns known as komon. In some cases today, however, these papers are used to make decorative objects in their own right.

How to make
Ise Katagami has four sculpture technique. ●Pull carving: We pull inner stripe carving ruler and chisel toward you and carve equal striped pattern. ●Projecting carving: We carve as if putting 5-8 pieces of model ground paper to stand called hole board, and hitting knife perpendicularly and advance. ●Tool carving: We carve using chisel that blade itself was made by flower, Ougi, form of hishito. ●We carve drill: The point of a sword carves Fumi such as "manners are consecutive" "hail" with semicircular chisel "fine sharkskin pattern" in technique to carve fine pattern.
Ise Katagami use four carving methods. Hikibori: Uniform striped patterns are created by using a ruler pulling the carving blade towards the artist. Tsukibori: Five to eight stencil sheets are placed on a hole-filled stand called an anaban, and a blade is used to pierce the stencils to carve a pattern. Dogubori: The blades itself are made into shapes such as flowers, fans, diamonds, and more, which are used to carve out shapes. Kiribori: This is a technique used to create fine patterns such as the "same komon", "gyogi toshi", and "arare", using a blade with a half-moon tip.
