TATCHA beauty papers were originally created by gold craftsmen to protect the precious metal they hammered into whisper-thin leafing to enrobe the majestic pavilions of Imperial Japan. Their gold-leaf artistry transformed the supporting paper into aburatorigami, an incredibly soft, strong and absorbent leaflet ideal for removing excess oils from delicate skin. How our geisha discovered that this precious by-product of the artisan’s alchemy could help create a perfect canvas for her makeup and keep her skin petal-fresh throughout the night remains a mystery. But the benefits of her ancient beauty secret remain unsurpassed to this day.
"Seriously fab finds direct from the beauty director's desk. Handmade gold-flecked blotting papers will obliterate an oily T-zone."
“...leaves the most intricate makeup remarkably undisturbed.”
"Laced with delicate gold leaf, these superfine, scent- and powder-free TATCHA Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers ...absorb oil and—in traditional geisha fashion—leave the most intricate makeup remarkably undisturbed."
Are TATCHA beauty papers only for those with oily skin?
No, some of our most passionate customers have dryer or more mature skin. They love the product as a powder alternative to keeping skin petal fresh.
Will the gold flake transfer onto my skin?
No, the gold flake is transfer resistant. Unless the paper is completely soaked with water, the gold flake will not come off.
How do you pronounce aburatorigami, what does it mean?
Aburatorigami (a-boora-tori-gami) refers to gold-leaf origin blotting Japanese papers.
