■Yanase Washi (Japanese paper)

Since 1975, we have been manufacturing fusuma papers (paper) with plain and patterned fusuma paper made by hand as Yanase Washi Co. In recent years, the demand for fusuma paper has dropped sharply as houses have become more westernized. Therefore, the company is also making efforts to produce paper smaller in size than fusuma paper, paper that can be produced in small lots, and boxes made of washi paper with a sophisticated design to suit the modern lifestyle.
