The world’s Thinnest TENGU

Tosa TENGU (a kind of washi commonly known as Tosa Tengujo-shi in Japanese) is likened to the “wings of a mayfly."  Made from high-quality kozo, it is one distinctive kind of handmade washi that is both transparent and flexible.

TENGU natural shade

For restoration of old documents, and other uses that take advantage of Kozo’s original fiber quality.

Our “natural shade” TENGU is cooked with SODIUM CARBONATE. Among our different varieties of Japanese Paper TENGU, the fibers in this variety are the strongest, and thus it is used widely for restoration purposes.  Regarding the impurities that often remain on the paper surface on unbleached paper, we remove them completely by hand.  Depending on where the kozo was grown or the particular processing methods, the color and feel of the paper will be different, and we feel that the unbleached character of this paper is appropriate for old documents

TENGU chlorine free

Used in restoration of old documents, preservation of calligraphy, paintings, and rubbings.

In general paper is bleached with chlorine, and minute traces of chlorine left in the paper results in fading, discoloration, and deterioration over time.  Our “chlorine free” tengu is bleached with our own original method, without using chlorine or fluorescent dyes.  By repeated rinsing of the material, we remove the impurities that cause deterioration with a weak alkaline solution.  By bleaching the ability of colors to stand out on the paper is heightened.  This paper is appropriate for longterm storage of important records, and restoration of reinforcement work.
