Great as a whole for all creative purposes.  Cutting down to sizes would also make for great invitations, wedding seating cards, calligraphy etc.

Made of quality local ganpi and pickings from the mill's surrounding fields and mountains.

First conceived by Tohmi Kyoumi, the second generation of the one of a kind mill, and continued by the third generation Kazuyuki.

Noto Nigyou Washi was founded in the late 1940's by Tohmi Shusaku in a remote location in the Noto Peninsula, completely unrelated to any preexisting paper-making tradition.  The fact it stands on its own in the wilderness has allowed the mill unprecedented freedom 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 audiences.
