Art By Temma Gentles
Kata-gami is the ancient Japanese art of cutting stencils that are used for printing garments and household textiles. In preparing this piece, the klaf stencil was divided into quadrants with patterns suggesting the Elizabethan four elements – earth, water, air and fire – overlaid on lush Italian woven silk. The final product is reproduced on paper.
Our paper ketubahs (papercut ketubahs included) are printed on cold press, acid free art paper, the standard in artistic reproductions. This paper is slightly textured and can be ordered with or without name printing.

Similar Types of Ketubahs
Papercutting has been a traditional Jewish art form for Ketubah decoration since the Middle Ages. Thanks to advances in artisanal laser cutting in the late 20th century, these exquisite pieces of fine art are now within everyone’s budget. Papercut Ketubahs are lovingly produced, one at a time, to archival standards.
About the Artist
The essence of all that I do is bringing stories to life. For the past several years my major pursuit has been Torah Stitch By Stitch, a project of profound collaborative engagement and education involving over 1450 stitchers in 28 countries. With our exhibition in place, I welcome the opportunity to return to my art practice of commissioned textiles and to designing some new ketubot.
