Aiko's Favorites-Fine Art Papers

Since 2008, the year that Aiko’s (formerly of Chicago, IL) closed up shop, Paper Connection has had the honor and delight to be the exclusive supplier of Aiko’s Japanese papers.  For decades, artists around the globe loyally returned to the quality selection which Aiko’s provided, now those beloved papers are still available through Paper Connection.

Aiko’s Mingei which we call Color Kōzō, is popular with bookbinders and conservators alike.  Currently we stock several colors from Aiko’s original stock, plus many more colors from a delectable, vintage stock. Our Color Kōzō sheets were made by a variety of different Japanese paper mills and we have close to 40 colors, including black.

A limited quantity of Aiko’s Takeo Cover Paper is also in our warehouse.

We are confident that all Aiko’s customers will be truly satisfied with our selection, and that all new clients will surely enjoy the experience of using these classic papers.
