If the summer weather has your complexion heading past dewy and right into shiny, you might like Tatcha, a new line of handmade blotting papers.

According to company founder Vicky Tsai, these aburatorigami were used for hundreds of years by geisha; they are made in Japan from abaca leaf paper.

Originally the papers were a byproduct of the work of gold artisans, who used paper to protect the metal they were working on. The protective sheets of paper became flecked with gold, but also soft and absorbent—ideal for freshening the face or setting makeup.

Tatcha’s version of the beauty papers are fragrance-, oil- and powder-free, and biodegradable. They're sold in packs of 30 or 90. You can find them in Honolulu at eco-chic Super Citizen, 22 South Pauahi Street, 599-4333.
