Established in 1964, Shogado are renowned for their traditionally made stationery and paper products, which encompass  notebooks, gift sets and origami papers for special projects, as well as irreverent collaborations with contemporary illustrators and designers. Informed by Kyoto's rich cultural heritage, the Shogado yuzen range is distinguished by accute sensitivity to colour and the masterful use of authentic hand-printing techniques. Inks are pigment rich and fade resistant, proportions, binding and presentation are considered and precise. Uki is delighted to bring the beauty of these quintessentially regional designs to your everyday communications.

A gorgeously presented set of origami sheets, each including five different patterns, these very special papers are ideal for the origami enthusiast or papercrafter. Yuzen designs are based on historical patterns, originally developed for the kimono textile industry (for which Kyoto is famous). Painstakingly silk screen printed, every colour must be added in a single layer to each washi sheet, with fine gold and silver accents applied last, before the paper is cut into perfect origami squares.
