Shikoku Chuo City is Japan’s leader in total paper products shipped out, and it is said that these roots go back to the Horeki Era (1751 – 1763) . Today, manufacturing is thriving not only for calligraphy washi, but also washi for printing uses, base paper for food products, and more.
”With paper-making, we are doing trial-and-error on a daily basis. With the smooth writing sensation of this stationery, it is ideal for those using washi for the first time.”
– Kubo, an Iyo washi craftsman
