Printing on surface turns folded parts into white, but stencil dyeing makes a dyestuff infiltrate to an inside of a mold and maintain beautiful patterns even if paper is wrinkled or folded. It doesn’t not turn white even if it is folded. This dyeing method is the same as for kimono and belts.
Stencil dyed Japanese paper is perfectly suited for processed goods because a dyestuff infiltrate to an inside and folds do not turn white. Waterproofing is performed for Japanese paper which gets softer and fits in hands with use without losing color over time to create various Japanese paper accessories like a cushion with an excellent design.
