Washi papers are a type of paper crafted in Japan that is made from fibers of gampi or mulberry trees. Occasionally, parts of rice stalks, bamboos may also be found in the production of washi papers. This gives washi papers their unique look and texture.
To produce washi papers, fibers are first removed from the barks of trees through a process of boiling the bark and extraction. The fibers are then boiled with lye to remove starch, fat and tannin. The fibers are then rinsed under water to remove the lye. They are then bleached, and the pulp is then mixed with water and washi paper is made from the mixture. Through this time consuming process, fine washi paper is created.
