URUSHI and WASHI
Normally with urushi printing technology, printing would only be possible on deerskin; by applying a special treatment to Naoron, a strong washi paper developed by our company, printing that lays delicate lines of urushi on washi was made possible.
Through our attempts regarding Naoron’s strong surface and traditional urushi printing techniques handed down through generations combined with new technology, a new way of showcasing washi and urushi has been achieved.
After diligently refining the washi, seasoned artisans print each and every piece by hand. The expression of even the most intricate patterns has been realized through the development of our unique technology.
