Washi has a smooth surface where brushes slides perfectly, making it ideal for Japanese calligraphy, shodo.Shifu is an ancient technique that turns washi into a thread combined with cotton or silk to create weaves. This process allows to get a durability that cannot be found in washi paper sheet. Shifu has been used in Japan for over 300 years to produce a wide range of clothing and textiles.
