‘Kozo' (mulberry) has the basic look of Japanese washi with extreme durability and the subtle beauty that kozo fibers afford. Kozo is recommended for photographic prints, high-end reproductions and original works of fine art and is particularly well suited for prints/reproductions of Asian-style works. Kozo is a traditional material used to make washi, and the fibers are long and thick resulting in a strong paper with excellent archival qualities. Additionally, Kozo feels soft but is extremely durable. A special coating has been added to reduce the bleed characteristics that is often found with all other kozo-based paper.
