Washi is the Japanese word for the traditional papers made from the long inner fibers of three plants native to Japan  – kozo (thick and strong), mitsumata (graceful and delicate) and gampi (beautiful natural sheen). Other fibers can be used as well, such as hemp and abaca, which can be used to make paper or mixed in with the other fibers.  Washi is revered for its strength due to its long fibers, endurance and elegance. These qualities make it a natural fit for countless uses, such as bookbinding, paper lanterns, screens, gift wrap, origami and more. 

Strong and translucent, this particular style of thin washi paper was originally used to make prayer lanterns in Japan.
