YOBOTY Inshu Washi Paper Series

TSP Co., Ltd. (Tottori)

YOBOTY Inshu Washi Paper is a series of accessories and household goods created using inshu-washi, a traditional Japanese craft that has been made for over 1,300 years in Tottori Prefecture. Inshu-washi paper is carefully strained and the fibers become finer, producing a delicate but strong paper. Earrings made with Inshu-washi paper retain the lightness and softness of washi paper, so that even with a slightly larger design they feel light on the ear. Due to the unique characteristics of washi paper, even when it gets wet, the fibers do not swell or break easily – you can apply your favorite fragrance to the earrings and they become a one-of-a-kind accessory, releasing the scent as you wear them. Now that the Japanese “kawaii culture” is gathering popularity globally, Inshu-washi items are not only a fusion of traditional crafts and contemporary culture but also a bridge that connects Japan to the world.

Winner’s Voice

Inshu-washi is a cultural tradition that boasts over 1,300 years of history.
