Washi

Welcome to Washi,
the Art of Japanese Papermaking!

Washi is the light, strong traditional Japanese paper made by hand from the inner-bark fibers of three plants. The name washi literally means "Japanese paper". Today most paper in Japan is made in large automated mills, but a few hundred families in rural villages continue to make washi in the traditional way.

Take a Virtual Tour of Washi Making.
