Paper that breeze

Innovative materials and methods are used such as adding the mineral Zeolite to the mulberry fibres bringing dehumidifying and deodorizing functions.
Making paper using “koyori washi” (Japanese paper twisted into string) attached to wooden frames and thinly applied in layers to this many times and then it was repeatedly dipped into a water tank with paper fibres while still keeping a thin and light texture to the paper.
The holes are not planned but occur naturally during the papermaking process. The paper is light, air flow is not blocked.
These original washi creations are supplied domestically and abroad to decorate stores and hotels etc. Maximum size is 4000mm×1700mm.
