There are 2 Washi Boxes with a special theme during the year. The Washi Box of April celebrates the Japanese springtime with a content full of cherry blossom. And in November, the japanese papers of the Washi Box aim to bring you the warm colors of Automn maple leaves.
What's inside your box?
The Washi Box contains a selection of 10 sheets of Japanese papers in the A4 format (21x30cm; but it's usually a little bigger). I choose to put in the box a range of different kind of papers so you could explore the world of Japanese papers without getting bored at all. In addition, a little sticker "i ♥ washi" is joined with your papers; there are 8 different to collect and tell the world you love washi!
The paper selection is diverse and varied, and change every month: most of papers have colorful and unique patterns (like yuzen, chiyogami, katazome paper), but you will also find more traditional plain and fine-art paper (washi), hand-dyed (itazome, aizome), lace paper (rakusui) and many other types of japanese papers.
The Washi Box contains several kind of papers to help you discover this generous craftmanship from Japan. Thus, a small leaflet is joined to the papers in the box. It contains explanation about their origin and their manufacture, some creative idea to get started with your paper treasures (also on the 'Creative ideas' page), some news from Japan, tips and others nice little discoveries that will complete your paper therapy.
