AWAGAMI Factory: 8 Generations and 300 years of Fine Papermaking and Design
AWAGAMI's Fuimori family has been continually making fine Japnese 'washi' paper for 8 generations in Tokushima. 6th generation papermaker, Minoru Fujimori was a Japanese "Sacred Treasure" by the Emperor. AWAGAMI produces washi from renewable fibers to create a variety of papers for interior design, photography and fine art art. The mill regularly collaborates with artists and designers exploring new washi concepts that may prove suitable for international creators. It is AWAGAMI’s ongoing desire to create traditionally inspired washi for today’s contemporary needs.
