Made in Toyama Prefecture, an area famous for producing high-quality Japanese paper. They continue to adhere to traditional paper making techniques: dyeing the paper with vegetable dyes, craft paper, patterned paper by stencil dyeing, and processing. 

With the advent of mechanized manufacturing of paper, Japanese paper industry in Yatsuo gradually declined. At the beginning of the Showa Era there was a boy captivated by the beauty of Yatsuo's Japanese paper that was on the verge of oblivion. It was the founder, Keisuke Yoshida ( 1915-2014), "I want to disseminate the beauty of Japanese paper." With this passion in his mind, he founded a studio in Yatuso and kept company with up-and-coming artists and busied himself with disseminating Japanese paper.
