Kozo Papers-Plain, Fine Art & Conservation
Paper Connection International, LLC carries close to 100 different plain white and natural, Japanese kōzo and gampi papers. We now have new Hanji, mulberry papers from Korea and our newest An-Jing papers, made from xuan fiber or blue sandalwood fibers. All of these papers make up our high quality collection of fine art papers for painting, drawing, conservation, encaustics and traditional as well as digital printmaking.
This section of Kozo, or Japanese mulberry, papers primarily refers to our Kozo line of Tosa Washi papers, originating from Kochi prefecture on Shikoku Island. The papermakers there have been established for centuries, crafting washi with their personal and unique methods. Some of the members of the mills in that area are recognized as National Treasures by the Japanese government.
