Echizen Washi

Available items


As a range of machinemade papers, this is probably the largest offering and widest selection available from Japan. 

The Echizen paper ranges can all be amazingly different depending on the paper manufacturer's specialty and the province or prefecture in which the papers are produced. Papers with swirl patterns of mixed fibers (can be a blend of sulphite, kozo-mulberry, mitsumata, gampi, hemp & bamboo), papers with inclusions, unique decorative textured patterns available in extensive color palettes. 

The Echizen paper ranges are too deep to keep in inventory (there are thousands), but in most cases are readily available from many different makers in throughout Japan as stock papers. The operative words with reference to the wide Echizen ranges would be "show Legion a sample" and we will source it from all papers that are available to us from the countless machine made makers that Legion has long standing relationships with. 

Suffice to say that the term Echizen Washi covers a wide gamut of Japanese papers all suitable for a variety of diverse applications; lampshades, screens, wall & floor coverings, packaging, deluxe stationery & invitation components, envelope liners, end papers for limited edition books - the applications for all of these varied ranges are limitless.
