Awagami Factory produces a wide range of beautiful handmade Japanese papers with four deckled edges for all printing, drawing, painting and craft needs.
All Awagami papers are acid-free and resistant to light.
Kitakata is Awagami's most famous paper. Primarily composed of gampi fiber, Kitakata Select is a heavier version of the original Kitakata paper. This new version has the subtle gloss, density and resilient surface that so many artists have come to love from Kitakata (just now more than twice as thick!). This paper exudes a warm tone and is highly resilient (due to the natural 'sizing' properties of its fibre.) Ideal for printmaking, drawing, mixed-media, book-arts and alternative photography.
