Now, because the world has yet to recognize that "Kirie" can be a commercial character product, I would like to introduce you to "Yuzen-shi", which can be used in conjunction with Kirie to create a more distinctive and mysterious fantastic world.


In the second half of this article, I will write about the product's actual specifications, so please read until the end.


The Yuzen Washi (same as Yuzen-shi) used for Chara-Kirie is mainly handmade by craftsmen in Kyoto and Fukui.

By the way, I heard that some of the CLAMP members are also from Kyoto. I feel a kind of Enn(Japanese meaning of a connection).

At a dyeing factory in Kyoto, where the kimono was originally dyed, the colors are carefully applied one by one by craftsmen using a dyeing technique called the "Tehnasen (⼿捺染)."


Now let's take a look at the actual process of making "Yuzen-shi".

This is the actual process of making the Yuzen-shi "Seigaiha ni Kobai Mon (⻘海波に⼩梅紋)" which is actually used for the Chara-Kirie product "Card Captor Sakura" 30th Anniv.


【The process of Tehnasen】 

①Making of the pattern

The design image is passed on, and a screen pattern is made from a hand-drawn drawing done by a kimono designer.

There are thousands of dyeing patterns to choose from...!

③友禅紙の染め型 数千枚あります 

②Set the Washi

After the position's decision, wetted washi is pasted one by one onto the dyeing board and carefully stretched out. It is crucial to position the washi correctly and to apply it properly.

The size of the base paper is approximately 100 x 66 cm.

①友禅原紙を1枚ずつ染め板に貼ります  

②位置を決め丁寧にのばします 

③The color mixing

Several kinds of pigments and resins are mixed. The combinations are infinite. Because of this, once a prepared color has been used in one production run, it cannot be regenerated precisely again. Experience and knowledge are required.

④色の調合 1 

⑤色の調合 2 

④The first coloring using the pattern

The pattern is placed on the washi. The base color is poured in.

⑦1枚目の型を置き地色を入れます 

⑤Putting the color in

Using a large spatula called a squeegee, color is carefully moved into place.

⑧スケージ(大きなヘラ)を慎重に動かし色を入れます 

⑨1色目 地色 

⑥Overlaying the colors

For each color, the pattern placed is changed on the washi, the pigment is poured in, and the squeegee is used to spread the pigment evenly.

Techniques are required to ensure that there are no differences in thickness or irregularities.

⑩色を重ねていきます

Using the pattern of the Seigaiha...

⑪2色目 青海波 

⑫金を入れてできあがり 

Putting the gold in and the painting is complete. This is the Seigaiha ni Kobai Mon that will come with the Kirie for this product.

Shines with beauty and elegance.

⑬染め上がり「青海波に小梅紋」 

⑦Drying

Finally, each piece is dried.

⑭染め板からはがした友禅紙を1枚ずつ乾かします 

The finished Yuzen-shi will be used for the Chara-Kirie "Cardcaptor Sakura" Kirie, currently available for pre-order...

In this picture, the Kirie is displayed in an acrylic photo frame, which is sold separately. When lit from behind, the washi glows faintly like a shoji paper, creating a fantastic atmosphere.

The Yuzen-shi is different but also, "Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle" and "xxxHOLiC"...

How was it? You can choose to decorate it simply with black paper and the Chara-Kirie itself, or you can use your favorite photo frame or picture frame.


We have adopted a holder type that can be folded and stored because some people use it as a gift depending on their purchase purpose.

We adopted this type because it won't pressure the person to hang it up or so if it was in a frame if given as a gift.

Also, the holder is made of paper, which makes it more effective in dealing with moisture and temperature changes during storage. 


Isn't it fun to imagine adding a little color to your room or living space? It may give you a chance to feel the traditional techniques and its atmosphere.
