From its humble beginnings in 1980, when founder Nancy Jacobi started showing artists and bookbinders these novel papers from the trunk of her car, The Japanese Paper Place staff continue their commitment to the company's mission to encourage and promote creativity with quality Japanese papers.
Although we have a warehouse full of machine-made and decorative Japanese papers, our particular passion is for sharing Heritage Washi, a term coined by Nancy to describe traditional Japanese handmade papers, using Japanese-grown fibres and methods that have been practised continuously for over 1000 years.
