Washi are Japanese traditional papers.

They are vary in the thickness and the textures but one common thing about washi is that they are all beautiful!

Washi are not only beautiful but also tough and good in the transparency.

They are made by hand, so the each paper is slightly different in the designs, unlike the mass product regular papers.

In the process of making washi, there are fewer chemical needed; therefore washi are considered as eco friendly papers.

Washi are used in various ways in Japan, such as origami, shouji, table set, lamp shade, umbrella, fan, and so on.
