Cooked in soda ash, unbleached, machine beaten, dried on wooden boards. This is one of the oldest continuously made papers in Japan, made in Sekishu, now called Shimane; don,,,t confuse this paper with others called ,,,Sekishu,,, that aren't 100% kozo,The technique for making Sekishu is designated by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and by Japan as an Intangible Cultural Property.,Traditionally used for brush writing, Sekishu is strong & absorbent; excellent for conservation, printmaking, dyeing.
