SIWA – Flexibility of Japanese paper, highly durable and water-resistant that does not tear

Located in Ichikawamisato, Yamanashi, which boasts a 1000-year history of papermaking, the Japanese paper (washi) maker, Onao and industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa have teamed together to create the Siwa series.

Fukasawa discerned that the special texture of Naoron, a hard-to-tear paper developed by Onao, emerged when the paper was crumpled, and suggested designs for everyday goods that harnessed this.

The name, Siwa is both a reversing of the characters in the word washi (wasi), and a word meaning, crinkle in Japanese.

As with leather goods, these washi products are lovingly, individually crafted.

Naoron is a new paper-like material developed with the traditional washi-suki   paper manufacturing technique, by the Japanese paper maker ONAO based in the Ichikawadaimon area. It is soft to the touch, light and flexible, yet very strong. The material is also superior in water resistance and durability that does not tear easily.
