Description

Details

This high quality fiber comes from the plant Wikstroemia diplomorpha and produces a lustrous, crisp, rattly paper. This is truly a special fiber to work with. It has an usual silken quality during fiber preparation, very different from the Japanese kozo and mitsumata. Not available during snake season, as it is gathered in the wild by old men who are afraid of snakes. To make paper, the dry fiber is first soaked in water, then cooked in soda ash. The cooked fiber may be hand beaten and can produce very thin, strong paper.

A SMALL QUANTITY OF JAPANESE GAMPI IS ONCE AGAIN AVAILABLE.
