About Washi Notebook
Washi is traditional Japanese paper made using the fibers of various plants.
History: The history of washi dates back to the 5th or 6th century. Since then, its quality has been repeatedly improved and it has evolved into a unique Japanese process. Initially, it was used for sutra copying and family registers. In the Heian period (794-1185), it was increasingly used by the nobility, and in the Muromachi period (1336-1573), it was incorporated into architecture. In the Edo period (1603-1868), production increased significantly, and shoji paper and umbrellas became a part of the lives of ordinary people.
Washi craftsmen: It is only through the labor and skill of the craftsmen who grow the raw materials for washi, produce it, and make the paper that the unique character, warmth, and humanity of washi can be conveyed. In addition, washi producing areas have preserved the ancient traditions and resources of Japan by using beautiful water, watermarking techniques, classical patterns, kimono patterns, and other creative ways that are unique to the area.
