Paper Mache White Tiger

tax included

Paper tigers are a traditional Kagawa craft made in a paper mache workshop in Mitoyo, Kagawa.
They have long been used as decorations for Boys' Festival and Hassaku Festival, in hopes of children's healthy growth. They are popular as local toys, birthday gifts, housewarming gifts, and lucky charms for business prosperity.
HIYORI's original paper mache tiger, "Nokke Byakko," has a design that fits easily into modern rooms. Made by hand using handmade washi paper from ancient documents and other sources, each paper mache piece has a warm, soft form that makes you feel attached to it just by looking at it. It has a cute bouncing head.

We asked crafters from all over Japan to create craft items to brighten up your daily life. The "h" engraved with each technique is slightly different, so it's lovable. We deliver products that you will want to use and cherish for a long time to come.
