This is milled washi which is not the same as handmade, however, the general process for making milled washi is essentially the same as the handmade process.
Making washi with machines results in a more consistent quality finish than by hand. The texture is also graceful, and it's translucence, subtly irregular texture, strength and durability make it suitable for special business paper in home offices.
WanoKaze Digital Washi is made in Ogawa town, Japan, by Takano Seishi-jo.
Eco friendly, Ethical, and Sustainable:
Generations of the Takano family have been engaged in the paper making industry for centuries. In 1961, we introduced paper making machines to our facility to meet the demands of modernization.
We use ecologically responsible and sustainable processes in paper making. Discards from sawmills such as wood chips and shavings are used as raw materials. Waste water is treated and purified before being returned to the natural environment.
