Echizen Washi Kaishi
“An attempt to create new things by studying the past through scrutiny of the old”
This is a parody of one of the well-known Chinese proverbs and our motto.
“Echizen Washi,” Japanese paper made in Echizen area, being created from beautiful nature and pure valley water, has been part of people’s lives and grown with the times.
And it is not possible to create the Japanese paper without the materials, the water, and the craftsmen with their earnest hearts.
We sincerely pay homage to our ancestors, who made a marvellous and continuous effort to protect the history and tradition of papermaking, as well as to the craftsmen, whose souls never let them compromise.
By fusing the two contrasting concepts, “tradition” and “evolution,” we would like to provide you with a new style of Japanese paper that fits your present way of living.
Feel the touch of the paper. Keep it close by. That will certainly make you smile.
