Chiyogami is a type of Japanese paper that was first produced in the late 18th century. It is typically decorated with printed patterns in bright colors. It is used for many things from origami to covering boxes to making kimono for papers dolls (anesama).

The name comes from the word chiyo, which means "a thousand generations" and kami, which is paper. It is often adorned by prints of plants and animals that signify long life (such as the crane or the tortoise).
