A wide range of beautiful Japanese papers for all printing, drawing, painting and craft applications. All Awagami papers are acid- free and resistant to light. Those listed as having 4 deckle edges are hand-made, and have a fine laid appearance. Those without deckle edges are machine made and generally have a polished, shiny surface on one side and a matt reverse.
This translucent interleaving paper has traditionally been used as facing sheet in all older books due to its unique quality of repelling oil based inks, thus preventing sticking between pages. In recent years, it has often been used by painters and printmakers alike for works on paper and mixed media.
