The Fujimori family has owned and operated the centuries-old Awagami paper factory since the late 1700s. While they are committed to preserving the nearly 2000-year-old Japanese paper making tradition, they are also continually moving forward in the craft, honing modern techniques and practices. The result is a highly diverse range of top quality fine art papers.
Kozo, which derives its name from the eponymous fiber from which it is made, is the choice of many fine art printmakers and calligraphers. Kozo fiber, a renewable resource, is long and durable, and results in a paper that is highly absorbent and supple. It also serves as the base paper for many other practical and creative applications such as shoji screens, umbrellas, lanterns, fans, and Yuzen-patterned papers. It is handmade from acid-free kozo, hemp, and sulphite pulp with four deckle edges.
