Mino papers are centuries old, going back to the Nara period (7th Century). They are the most desirable of papers with a wonderful range of weights from 12gsm to 30gsm.
All of the Hon Mino Gami papers are made with 100% Japanese Nasu Kozo, grown in the Ibaraki Prefecture. Nasu Kozo fibers are a bit shorter than other Kozo fibers which are considered the longest of the fibers. This enhances their appearance with a warm and soft texture. They are extremely durable to light and ideal for mending, hinging and desirable to conservators around the world. Uso Mino Thin 12gsm
