42 x 31 cm / 16.5 x 12.2 inches
100% Japanese Kozo with various natural dye, in 3 colors
This lovely paper is made by Yuzuan Studio, run by Fumie Matsumoto, near Ogawa. It is made from 100% Japanese kozo in an "Unryu" style, with some kozo fibers visible in the sheets. The papers are dyed using a variety of natural materials, including onion skins, loquat, walnut branches, and sumi ink, and come in a different color for each batch (and thus the product page is updated with each new batch we receive). The paper was dried on wooden boards, and on some sheets, the wood grain is visible. Wonderful for many kinds of printmaking, as well as drawing, painting, and decorative uses.
Due to the random nature of of the inclusions, each sheet is unique.
Note: Sizes may be slightly larger than stated here. Paper is made with hand-sorted fibers and therefore some variation may occur.
