Paper Nao Japanese Hand Made Paper

Since our inception CXD have offered the Nao selection - from the paper source established by Naoki Sakamoto - to promote traditionally made Japanese papers of the highest quality. They have selected paper of consistent quality, free from impurities such as mechanical wood pulp or iron particles caused by poor materials and drying methods common to cheaper papers. The pH value of the papers from Paper Nao range from 6.3 to 9.5. The Paper Nao selection is available in handmade sheets and machine-made rolls produced on a stainless steel machine to avoid rust in the paper. These machine-made paper rolls are often preferred over handmade sheets for repairing or lining brittle machine-made papers which have a definable grain direction. Typical characteristics of paper

Typical characteristics of paper

Kozo Fibre: Very long fibre. Durable with its own special sheen. Most frequently used type in Japan.

Gampi Fibre: Durable, thin almost transparent, excellent wet strength, lustrous surface. Traditional uses include gold and silver leaf productions.

Mitsumata Fibre: Used particularly in smooth or soft papers, suitable for calligraphy. Relatively less durable than other papers. Mitsumata fibres are sometimes combined with others.
