Yoshino Tesuki Washi

Made from Kozo (paper mulberry) bleached in the clear stream of the Yoshino river, Yoshino paper is praised as a perfect gem of thinly-filtered Japanese paper.
It is also known as Kuzu paper from the name of the region where it has traditionally been produced.
This paper has been highly valued as filtering paper for Urushi lacquer because it is so thin yet so strong.
Yoshino paper is also very popular for decoration and packaging due to its fineness and grace.
