Our Artisans in Japan for Sharing Their Craft

Washi from Precious Pieces is handmade in Japan. We appreciate the artisans we work with that share their art of papermaking brought to Japan by Buddhist monks in the year 610 AD. This process of the all natural manufacture of exquisite parchment has been passed down from family to family and still uses the same techniques as 500 years ago.

Thanks to our strong ties with these artisans, Precious Pieces is able to make this special product available via custom order and as large as 30′ x 100′ to our customers in the U.S. and other countries. It is also what allows us to present our customers with a Certificate of Authenticity. We are honored to work with these talented men and women.
