What it is:
An ideal gift for the beauty lover in your life, each set contains 15 packs of gold flecked aburatorigami and is gift wrapped in a handmade kiribako, a traditional Japanese wooden box used to protect treasured items such as silk kimonos and precious gifts. The box was custom made for TATCHA in Tokyo by a 200-year old artisan shop and has dimensions of 32.5 x 20.5 x 8cm.

For a petal fresh complexion, gently pat a single leaflet anywhere there is excess oil. Will not disturb makeup or steal mosture from the skin. Use both sides of each sheet and discard after use.
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."
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.

Life SaversThe blotting papers are fantastic and the kiri box is a very stylish place to keep my overflowing collection of the papers. I stash packages of the papers in my purse, toiletries bag, anywhere I can get them to fit!
Officially addictedI can't get through a day without a mid-afternoon blot. These little papers are the perfect way to touch up without having to pile on more powder.
Obsessed!I've been using the Aburatorigami papers ever since I saw them in Vogue - they're awesome. My sister and I sometimes have competitions to see whose paper comes away with the most oil, and yet it never even smudges my makeup. The website says it removes excess oil without drying the skin, and that's definitely what it feels like.
Anyways, I bought this box set for my sister when she got married, since she loves them (almost) as much as I do. The box is simple but elegant and beautiful, and there are fifteen packets - that's 450 sheets, which should last my sister a good long while. Hopefully now my family knows what to get ME for a gift...
