I've seen this Japanese masking tape floating around the web a bit, but until now it was never for sale stateside. Happy Tape! is now selling a wide range of hues and patterns of the tape, and I want them all! The tape is made from Japanese washi paper, a paper commonly made using fibers from the bark of the gampi tree, the mitsumata shrub, or the paper mulberry, but which can also be made using bamboo, hemp, rice, and wheat. I'm loving this Rich and Deep Set of 10 Rolls ($34, left): it's the moodiest masking tape I've ever seen! Of course, you could use the tape to fasten up a box, but the possibilities are really endless for how you could use them. There are plenty of other colors and patterns to drool over in various widths and set amounts, so go wild!
