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.

Lovely extra-thick handmade cards with 4 organic deckled edges suitable for drawing, painting, sumi-ink works, printmaking, letterpress, and anything else that you might fancy. Crafted in the "Tamezuki" method, an East-meets-West style of papermaking that allows for thicker sheets to be made. They make excellent unique canvases for personalized cards to those dear to you, near and far. And imagine doing this with your children, too! There are 5 sheets in each set, with each individual card measuring 10x15cm.
