Japanese paper “Washi” is likely to be registered a Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO

Hi all!

A UNESCO body that examines cultural heritage candidates recently recommended Japanese paper “Washi” for registration!

Washi is traditional japanese paper and it’s thin and strong.
Also the Washi has distinctive texture so good for useing lampshade, wrapping, wall decoration and lots more!

The registration of the Japanese paper “Washi” aims at three kinds of the “Sekishu standard Japanese paper”, “Honmino paper” and “Hosokawa paper”.

Honmino japanese paper

Honmino Japanese paper

Including “Japanese food” registered in last year by Japan 22 cases are registered so far.

I hope a lot of beautiful Japanese paper “Washi” come into the world! Because a tendency to decrease had the production of Japanese papers year by year.

Have a nice life♡
