[Producer’s Remarks]
It is said that this washi will last for almost 1,000 years. Since it is light, it won’t become bulky even when several notebooks are stacked together. It is perfect for writing a diary over dozens of years. It stands up to ultraviolet rays and won’t deteriorate, but it becomes even whiter when it is left in the sun. (Akiko Hino)
