Awa Washi Paper

Awa Washi Paper

Awa Washi Paper has a long history and is said to have been created by the Awa-Inbe Clan approximately 1,300 years ago. When the production was the most prosperous in the Meiji Period (1868–1912), there used to be 500 paper mills around the Yoshino River.

Awa Washi Paper is favored by many people as it is resistant against water, does not tear easily and has unique beauty.

Products suitable for the current needs such as interior goods, washi paper, which can be printed by offset printing, and stationery, have also been supplied.

Many artists in Japan and from overseas praise Awa Washi Paper highly, and lots of art works have been created, using Awa Washi Paper.

It was designated as National Traditional Craft in December 1976.
