Shogi Gami or TAF TOP means translucent white Japanese paper for Japanese traditional sliding doors.
The Japanese used to change damaged or discoloured paper, due to sunlight at the end of each year in order to start the new one freshly.
The yearly changing of the paper is less and less frequent since the adoption of more Western life style with fewer Shogis in this more modern way of living.
Our TAF TOP is a slightly more reinforced paper compared to the traditional one. (Cf. see photo).
TAT TOP is sold in rolls (width 955mm x 15m / width 955 mm x 30m)
TAF TOP N°2 wood grain pattern. The natural grain proves to be most attractive.
TAF TOP N°52: plain whitejust like a snow covered meadow.
