This outstanding paper is inspired by the rich, natural resources of the Noto Peninsula in the north coast of Japan.

Its use is limitless.

Noto Nigyou Washi was founded in the late 1940's by Toumi Shusaku in a remote location in Noto Peninsula, completely unrelated to any preexisting paper-making tradition.  The fact it stands on its own in the wilderness has allowed unprecedented freedom to the mill and innovated truly individual papers inspired by the surrounding nature. The mill eventually made close contact with the Mingei movement, especially with Bernard Leach, who promoted their papers to a wider audience.
