Made of Japanese handmade paper, momigami has been used to make kamiko (articles of clothing) worn in Japan for thousands of years.

As author and handmade paper expert Donald Farnsworth explains: “Traditional momigami is made by applying paste to a strong, handmade kozo paper, wrinkling and kneading the paper, then allowing it to dry. Momigami’s rich texture combines the complexity of entangled fibers with millions of wrinkles, creating a paper with the soul of a well traveled road. The amazing strength of momigami is due to the nature of the wrinkles coupled with the strong kozo fibers. The millions of small wrinkles add an elasticity to the paper, operating under the same principle as an accordion.”

This book details the history and process of creating this incredibly durable paper and includes step-by-step instructions for projects including a momigami wallet, card case, and wearable kimono-style jacket.
