Paper for Artists

These papers are made by master craftspersons, using traditional tools and techniques, handed down through the generations in Japan.

Our mission at the JPP is to support these valuable makers of traditional papers and to encourage the use of the finest papers by artists worldwide.

We believe that this paper will work with the artist to bring out the best of an artist's skill, be it block printing, etching, lithography, drawing, watercolour or acrylic painting, brush calligraphy, bookbinding, paper dyeing, sculpture or any other application that uses the special qualities of finely-made "washi."

It is these papers we believe most suitable for professional artists who care for the quality of the materials they use and want their work to last long into the centuries to come.
