1400 years since the craft began, the Japanese continue to produce papers of exceptional quality and infinite variety, both hand and machinemade, for a panorama of uses. Gradually, more and more varieties are being made by machine, both natural and decorative, in a range of quality. Today some of the finest papers using Japanese kozo and gampi fibres are made by machine in rolls, and used by conservators around the world. Other decorative papers too are made by machine with combinations of natural and man-made materials.
The strength and ageless beauty of these special papers makes them great for book covers and boxes, cards, collage, lampshades and more.
