History

Karakami came to China over 1000 years ago

We were founded in Kyoto in 1902 as Nishimura Korokudo (Hyogushi). In 1946, we opened Marunishouten and have been producing, selling, and constructing Karakami.

Karakami originally means "paper from China," and was introduced to Japan by Kentoushi in the Heian period (794-1185), when Japanese paper was not yet in use.

In the past, only a few aristocrats and the upper class could decorate their houses with gorgeous fusuma paintings.

For the houses of the common people, silk cloth, linen, or Karakami were used to decorate the screens and fusuma (sliding doors).

Karakami has been handed down to the present day as a traditional craft for interior decoration such as sliding doors and wallpaper.

We are expressing tradition in modern spaces by taking advantage of our strengths as a wholesaler of materials for fusuma (sliding doors) and tableware, as well as our ability to create products using historic Karakami and woodblock prints.

Characteristic

Projecting the pattern by hand, one by one

We have more than 300 woodblocks that have been handed down from about 180 years ago, and we use traditional paints mixed with kira, funori, and pigment to print traditional patterns on paper, one by one, by hand.

Traditional patterns that were popular before the Edo period are also carved on the woodblocks, and their design is astonishing.

This is a characteristic of hand-printing, which differs from machine printing in that it produces a fluffy, uneven application of paint.

The subdued glow of the paint when it hits the light creates an elegant atmosphere.

This unique texture created by human hands and woodblock printing is the characteristic of our Kyoto Karakami.

Today, it is used not only in traditional architecture, but also as sliding doors and wallpaper in modern architecture, stores, hotels, etc.

Recently, we are also trying to develop gift products based on the concept of the taste of the woodblock, the design, and the meaning of the patterns.

For Customers

Preserving Tradition, Changing Form, and Bringing it to the Modern Age

Kyo Karakami, which was originally used for sliding door paintings, has been seen less and less as the number of Japanese-style rooms has decreased.

But we want to pass on Kyo Karakami, a traditional craft of Kyoto, to the future, so we have opened a workshop not only for production but also for hands-on experience, which many customers enjoy.

In order for as many people as possible to see "Kyo Karakami," which is a perfect match of old-fashioned tools, craftsmanship, and modern sensibilities, we have created experience kits, fans, and art panels.

Why don't you turn your time at home into an enriching experience with the traditional Kyo Karakami?
