    'Sukashi' Watermarked

    Patterns on the 'Sukashi' watermarked sheets are created by specially designed stencils on the mold.

  • Yuzuan Studio

    Fumie began handmaking washi in 1995. Over the years, she has learned the value of using only the finest materials and tools, and gained an appreciation of the enduring legacy of traditional papermaking methods.

     

    Fumie pays special attention to the raw materials used, particularly, the kozo plant (paper mulberry). The bark of the kozo shoots are the main materials for making Ogawa Washi.

     

    Like the long-established practice of paper artisans, Yuzuan grows her own kozo and uses only locally grown plants for her washi.

  • Tips

    Tips

    * The paper can be dry ironed in medium temparature to straighten out curling. Ironing, however, will not smooth out creased papers.

    * Dry iIroning the paper before printing flattens its fuzzy fibers and prevents paper jams in your printer. 

    * A paste made from alum root powder can be applied to reinforce the paper, making it more durable and water resistant.

    Note:

    * The paper clips used in this package are made with 100% virgin pulp, made from wood chips and thinned wood. No chemicals are used. They are shreddable.
