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, she grows her own kozo and uses only locally grown plants for her washi.
