Description

For this beautiful notebook, we went to the Kami to Wa store in Kyoto and met with Miwako. The store was founded by her grandparents, 88 years ago.

Washi is a traditional Japanese paper which was conveyed from China 1400 years ago. The notebook pages are handmade washi paper and binded together by hand. Washi is made with a local ingredient called kozo tree which is a Japanese mulberry. Japanese farmers have been making washi paper after harvesting the rice, so it was considered as a side job for the farmers for a long time.

The cover of the notebook is made with yuzen paper. Yuzen paper is a japanese traditional paper made in Kyoto and is all hand painted. The patterns come from kimono clothes. The cover paper of this notebook depicts cranes which are a symbol of longevity and good fortune in Japan.
