Made from Washi poster

Washi tape ‘mt’ is a derivative commodity from masking tape which is usually used in construction site. As its various colors and patterns, ‘mt’ got popular to decorate things and developed a new market as a nifty and useful gadget.

These posters were created for a promotional exhibition ‘mt ex’ at Mino Washi Museum, Japan. As Mino is known for its Washi skill, the exhibition featured the beauty of Washi. So I printed symbolic tape images onto 1030×1456mm Washi paper, which is the biggest size in handmade Washi papers. We aimed to impress customers with the beautiful semi-transparent posters and make them realize the value of Washi.
