What's Washi?
Have you discovered the sensuality and beauty of washi yet? Japanese artisans have been handcrafting this paper for over 1,300 years. Unlike standard, run-of-the-mill paper that comes from trees, washi's long fibres come from the inner bark of kozo, mitsumata and gampi plants. The lengthy production process requires skill and patience, but renders paper that is highly absorbent, flexible and durable while remaining light with a low acidity.

Paper for Everything
Au Papier Japonais offers over 500 kinds of paper imported from Japan. They sport unique motifs, textures and colours to reflect any mood and purpose. You'll additionally find paper from other countries such as Nepal, Thailand and India. The paper can be used to make invitation cards and announcements; fashion lamp shades; decorate photo album and box covers; or create gift wrap and kites. The boutique also sells stationary, screens, lampshades, Japanese-style blinds, storage boxes, kimonos, home décor items, calligraphy tools, books and more.

Workshops
The business also offers numerous studios in which to fashion paper, cards, portfolios, collages, kites and jewelry. Other classes teach calligraphy, dying, stencilling and binding techniques. These bilingual workshops are open to anyone at any level of experience. The day-long courses last six hours while the mini-courses run two hours and 30 minutes. All the tools and materials are included in price of the course. Students leave a class with a finished project as well as the know-how to continue their craft in the future.
