The technique of Rakusui (create gaps on the surface by dropping water) has existed for years. In the manufacture of 27gsm Asarakusui paper, Awagami redefined this method by adding hemp fibres in the paper so that the gaps on the surface are emphasized and crisp. The hemp fibre has natural gloss and the clear gaps give the paper a refreshing and cool effect. By utilizing the transparent aspect, this paper is suitable for making lampshades as well as many other art and craft applications. Can also be used as special purpose wrapping paper.
