 Kozo Paper

Kozo Paper

Paper mulberry is the most common material used for Japanese paper. Paper made from koi is robust and easy to handle even when wet. It is commonly used for traditional Japanese interior doors, such as shoji (sliding blind doors) and fusuma (cupboard doors). Even though it is thin, it is firm and sturdy, making it ideal for painting, preservation, and restoration.
