Glossary of Printing Terms:
Japanese Papers

Papers made in Japan using the fibers of native plants. Authentic Japanese paper, known in Japanese as washi (wa = Japan and shi = paper), is made from kozo, mitsumata, gampi or kuwakawa (mulberry tree).

Manual production involves dipping the sieve, which is usually made of bamboo, several times into the paper pulp using a particular rhythm.
