The Fujimori family has owned and operated the centuries-old Awagami paper factory since the late 1700s. While they are committed to preserving the nearly 2000-year-old Japanese paper making tradition, they are also continually moving forward in the craft, honing modern techniques and practices. The result is a highly diverse range of top quality fine art papers.
The manufacture of Sekishu started 1300 years ago and continues today. It is the trademark of the Shimane prefecture, famed for producing the purest conservation papers. Sekishu paper is handmade with kozo and sulphite pulp, acid-free with four deckle edges and a laid finish. It is used mostly in conservation, but also suitable for printing and printmaking.
