EXCEPTIONAL INSHU JAPANESE WASHI PAPER

Inshu Japanese washi paper has a history of more than 1200 years from Tottori Prefecture and was designated as Traditional Japanese Craft by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in 1975; it was the first Japanese washi paper to be designated as Traditional Japanese Craft.

Washi is written “Japanese paper” in Chinese character and used as a word to differentiate from western paper. Japanese washi paper has a rich texture because of the size of fibers used for its production. Texture to the eye does not mean it has a rough feel; when touching it, you can enjoy its silky smoothness to your fingers. The long, uniquely intertwined fibers used in Japanese washi paper makes it have strong durability. Historically, it has been used in daily items such as screen doors, lighting shade, printing paper and unimaginable items such as clothing, bed cloth, money, air balloon, umbrella, etc. While western paper is said to last 100 years, Japanese washi paper lasts 1000 years. Calligraphy paper using Japanese washi paper adds exceptional flow to ink and written letters.

 

PAPER SIZE HANSHI

Han means “half”, shi means paper; As the name is written, it literally means half of a large standard writing paper which was standardized from the Heian Era (794-1185). Hanshi became standard size for wrapping in the Edo Era (1603-1867) and used as practice writing paper from the Meiji Era (1868-1912). Because of its usability, what was produced by cutting a larger standard writing paper is now produced as its size.
