A SELECTION OF FRUIT WRAPPERS FROM CHINA, KOREA AND JAPAN 

UNE SÉLECTION DE PAPIERS D'EMBALLAGE DE FRUITS DE CHINE, DE CORÉE ET DU JAPON

NOTE:   All of these wrappers are of paper. The paper used for many of the Chinese wrappers shown below is made of rice, grass, sugar cane and bamboo. Most of the wrappers on this page are larger than my scanner bed, with the result that their sides and/or top and bottom are truncated in these scans. All dimensions given in the captions are in centimeters (1 inch = 2.5 cm). The image or main part of the image on many Chinese wrappers is intentionally printed off center.
