Tsukushi Chiyogami 45 design Origami Paper
Tsukushi, also spelled Dukushi, is a maker of origami paper. Chiyogami is the Japanese name for woodblock-style repetitively patterned, brightly colored papers. The Tsukushi Chiyogami 45 design pack of origami therefore is a pack of patterned origami paper made by the Tsukushi company and featuring colorful, repetitive traditional Japanese designs. It was sold as a pack of 90 sheets, with 2 of each design, and came in a clear plastic carrying case.
I have bought numerous of these packs over the years because customers would want twenty of a certain design and I'd therefore have to buy ten packs of paper to get 2 sheets per pack to meet their needs. At this point in my inventory I have up to 40 of some design and only one or two of other designs. The Tsukushi Chiyogami paper pack is now out of print and I believe I've bought out all inventory I can find on the web :). So if a pattern exists at all on the web any more, I probably have it. And if I don't have it in stock any more, it might not be available anywhere in the world.
The origami world of paper is a fascinating one. It's not like book companies where they keep reprinting a book. With origami paper, they do a vast run of a pattern and then that's it. They move on to other patterns. So the available patterns change over the years. It's, I suppose, like wallpaper. Wallpaper vendors change their offerings year by year and it can be quite challenging to get "old wallpaper" if you happen to see one you like.
Here are the 45 patterns that are available in the Tsukushi Chiyogami set. Again these are all limited edition, limited quantity. I do have many other pattern styles in my inventory so if I'm out of the particular one you like, I might have others that are quite similar that will work just as well for your project.

You can choose to have this paper be the base for any of my origami creations - origami cranes, origami flowers, origami mobiles, and anything else I create.
I am not an origami paper store. If your aim is to buy packs of origami paper you are best served by finding an online store and ordering from them. All my paper is loose. However, if you are a crafter and absolutely can't find a paper elsewhere, I will do my best to help you out.
