Japanese Cranes Washi paper

Product Description

What is washi paper?

Washi paper is one of Japan's most fundamental artistic products. For nearly 1,300 years it has served as the backbone to other Japanese art forms.

Here is a link to a video that explains and shows the labor intensive process of making traditional washi paper:

Washi paper is the perfect medium for a variety of paper-crafts!

  • Printing and writing: Thanks to its thicker, more absorbent texture, washi is an excellent base for linoblock printing, colored lithographs, letterpress, embossing, and in more contemporary times, digital printing. Cards and wedding invitations for example are incomparably more inviting when printed on Japanese washi!
  • Art: Many traditional artforms in Japan rely on washi. The particular texture of washi is essential for sumi-e and calligraphy as it allows the right flow and absorbtion of the watery ink.
  • Bookbinding: Japan is a literature loving nation, so it’s no surprise really that washi and publishing go hand in hand. Rather than being used on the inside pages, washi is most typically used for book covers due to its beauty, durability and flexibility.
  • Origami: With its sturdy, more malleable texture, washi paper is an excellent tool for origami. It retains its shape much better than other thinner origami papers. And of course, the unique look of washi lends its beauty to the finished object.
  • Interior design: Due to its interesting, almost earthy textures and with a unique quality that sets off soft translucent light, washi has long been recognized as an ideal material for lamps, indoor screens, and more recently shutters and blinds. Its organic, natural feel is much more appealing visually than sterile mass-produced paper or other artificial materials.

Our sheets are 36" x 24" and silk-screened with beautiful traditional and classic Japanese patterns for a variety of uses.
