Product Description

Mokume means "wood grain surface." Traditional handmade Japanese papers were dried on wooden boards, and the wood grain pattern of the drying boards often remained embedded on the final papers. This subtle patterning gave a distinctive character to those papers, and was the inspiration for this embossed machine-made variation.

Category Description: Japanese Modern Classics

The Modern Classics are the most notable additions to LCI's Japanese Paper Collection. Each of these fine papers is a modern version of a historical classic, without the cost or limitations of the traditional versions. As each of these papers are as lovely as they are printer-friendly, they are perfect for a wide range of creative projects.

Jessica Mann of The Japanese Paper Place discusses the new Modern Classics

Each paper in this category is a modern, machine-made take on a traditional original. While the original papers would have been hand-made from painstakingly prepared kozo bark, the cost of traditional methods of production is too high to compete with Western machine-made papers. So these papers were developed: incorporating the speed and economy of Western style papermaking, but keeping the distinctive Japanese finishes that made the originals so special and the quality control that keeps the standard high.

On the growing trend towards Modern Classics

They are really perennial favourites that people have enjoyed for years for their subtle beauty and printability; but they've been a well-kept secret. Despite our best efforts, they are not widely known, so we're happy to introduce them to a wider audience. Once people try them, they keep coming back to them! It helps that they are printable: people can easily run them through their home printers and combine them with other Japanese papers for a consistent look.
