Grown straight and tall in the Florida sunshine, this bark makes beautiful handmade Asian-style paper -- whether it be washi [Japanese-style paper], hanji [Korean-style paper] or unique western style sheets or sculptures.

 

This fiber has been harvested by my husband and I in Gainesville, Florida and is sold in one-pound bundles. The finished paper is a beautiful, supple pale yellow [almost white] paper.

 

*SUPPLIES ARE LIMITED

 

***ALLOW TWO WEEKS FOR PROCESSING, as the bark has to be soaked, scraped and dried before shipping***

 

** For orders over four pounds, additional shipping & handling will apply.

  • Because this bark has been soaked and scraped with a great deal of care, it is ready for the cook pot and requires a minimum of chiritori picking [i.e., removing fragments of unwanted exterior bark]. 

  • Kozo is the ‘common’ name used to describe the inner bark from the shrub/tree, Broussonetia papyrifera. For many centuries, this fiber has been used to make beautiful handmade paper [and before that, bark cloth] around the globe but especially in China, Korea, Japan, Indo-China, South Asia and the Polynesian islands.
