3 Unique Ways Of Using "Washi" Japanese Craft Papers

Do you know "Washi" ?? Literally, it means "Japanese Paper". Find out its versatility!

Washi is the term used to describe Japanese-style paper. Incidentally, "Wa" and "Shi" mean "Japanese" and "Paper" respectively. It is made using fibers from the bark of three plants native to Japan—the gampi tree, mitsumata shrub or paper mulberry. Used for a broad spectrum of products ranging from paper bags to masking tape and origami paper, Washi paper can be used in three innovative ways that will surprise you!

Stronger and tougher than conventional paper, it’s no wonder that Washi is combined with cotton to make Washi clothings / underwears! Not to worry, you can wash it with your other laundries.
Try wearing it sometime to get up close and personal with the functionality and beauty of Washi!
