Details

Thai kozo is our most popular fiber. Grown in Thailand, this fiber from the paper mulberry tree, Broussonetia papyrifera, is identical, botanically, to the Japanese kozo, but growing conditions in a much warmer climate result in a difference in the fiber's characteristics.

Our current supply is little different from last year's kozo. The strips are wider and require a little more preparation. We recommend soaking the fiber in water for a few hours, and then separating the strips by hand into 1/2 inch strips, so that the fiber will cook evenly. We also suggest cooking the fiber for about 4 hours in a 25% solution of soda ash. Paper will be a beautiful tan color.
