Heritage Washi

Heritage Washi is a term coined by The Japanese Paper Place for Japanese papers that are still made by hand by skilled craftspeople using the earth-friendly techniques and materials of their ancestors.

The papers represented here are those we recommend for use in conservation. They are primarily papers that we designate Heritage Washi and other papers useful in conservation work because of their colour or weight. Each paper is listed with its fibre content, weight, and fibre preparation method.
