Crafting traditional papers for contemporary life
Located in the heart of Tokushima, Japan, Awagami Factory has been producing high quality papers since the 18th century. Awagami has a very long knowledge that has been passed throughout the different generations, which allows them to focus on the high quality of the unique washi paper that they provide to the different markets, and integrate washi paper into contemporary society and is known as a modern-day facilitator of washi culture.
Washi Paper & the Environment
Awagami washi paper is an "Intangible Cultural Property" of Tokushima, Japan.
Since antiquity, Japanese washi has been made from renewable plant resources that grow to maturity in 1-2 years. When compared to wood-based papers (that take dozens of years to mature and require many chemicals), washi is created with significantly less harm to our environment in a clean and eco-friendly manner.
