This japanese paper is absorbent, takes colour well, is natural in colour with a medium evenness of fibre surface. Usu Kuchi paper becomes very cloth-like when treated with Konnyaku (Konnyaku is powdered Devils Tongue root, a natural plant starch that, when mixed with water and applied by brush to paper, gives extra strength, waterproofing and memory to those papers. Transforms paper magically to cloth.) 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. Generally Kozo papers are the most absorbent and the strongest for relief prints. If you are using waterbased inks, you will likely want a sized paper.Any of the natural kozo papers (Nishi-kaji, Tengu-jo Heavy, Uwa Senka) can be marbled or dyed or stencilled by an artist quite readily, and it creates a unique paper which can then be used on or in a book.
