Washi is traditional Japanese paper processed by hand using fibers from the inner bark of certain trees or shrubs. Awagami's washi products are 100% crafted and produced by the Fujimori family in Tokushima, Japan. Since antiquity, Japanese washi has been made from renewable plant resources that reach maturity in 1-2 years. When compared to wood-based papers (that take dozens of years to mature and require many chemicals), washi is created with significantly less harm to our environment in a clean and eco-friendly manner. In the traditional spirit of Japan, Awagami maintains a caring and nurturing focus on the environment using these renewable plants and recycling all water used during production.

Thick handmade cards suitable for many types of fine art, crafts and printing. They make excellent unique canvases for personalized cards to those dear to you, near and far. And imagine doing this with your children, too! Made in the Tamezuki method, an East-meets-West style of papermaking that allows for thicker sheets to be made. These cards have small bits of local onion peels mixed throughout each sheet (but have no odor). There are 10 pieces in each set, with each individual card measuring 10x15cm.
