“Shifu” is a paper cloth made from natural fibers and cut into small pieces, then processed into woven or tape like paper yarn.
A traditional textile that has been used for kimono and obi since the Edo era. In the Meiji era, “Moroshifu” made of paper yarn in length and width were processed into wallpaper.
The powerful three-dimensionality created by the thick stitches of paper yarn has the appeal to instantly realize that it is a real fabric even from a distance.
Paper cloth wallpaper can be used in a variety of design expressions depending on the dyed and woven pattern of the paper yarn and the color tone of the backing paper. A wide range of coordination is available, ranging from traditional Japanese rooms to modern spaces.
Silk wallpaper is a typical example of textile wallpaper and made from fabric using silk yarn in length and width. Silk yarn has both high reflectivity and translucency called “silk prism”.

It shows various expressions as much as possible.

The wallpaper using jute or raffia, whose fiber thickness and color change randomly with large knots creates a rich presence that makes viewers want to touch it unintentionally.
