Tosa Usushi washi paper is a very even, smooth translucent white paper that although thin is incredibly strong. Tosa refers to the region where this paper is made and usushi means thin paper. This Japanese Paper Tosa Usushi is perfect for book repair, conservation, chine-colle, dyeing and stitching in layers. The handmade paper is popular for relief prints. Made in Kochi (Tosa), usu(thin)shi(paper) is made by a wonderful young maker whose upbringing in a Bhuddist temple shows in the even, carefully prepared kozo fibre. Though that fibre is Thai kozo which tends to be coarser, his careful preparation has made a very fine paper. As a result it is highly absorbent with a smooth very even surface. Washi is the Japanese word for the traditional papers made from the long inner fibres of three plants, wa meaning Japanese and shi meaning paper. The inner barks of three plants, all native to Japan, are used primarily in the making washi. Kozo (paper mulberry) is said to be the masculine element, the protector, thick and strong. It is the most widely used fibre, and the strongest. It is grown as a farm crop, and regenerates annually, so no forests are depleted in the process.
