Partnering with The Japanese Paper Place
Washi Arts is proud to work with the Japanese Paper Place to carry a premium line of hand and machine made washi
(wa = Japanese + shi = paper).
The Japanese Paper Place is the world's largest supplier of fine Japanese Papers under one roof. They have been providing knowledge and inspiration to creative enterprises around the world since 1982. Founder Nancy Jacobi and her talented staff are pro-active believers in the importance of keeping the craft of hand papermaking alive in Japan.
Washi Arts is run by Linda Marshall, a creative designer with a background in corporate and non-profit communications, strategy, design and marketing. Her lifelong interest in the design arts comes from a multi-media artist mother and an engineer father, as well as a creative education in interior architecture and brand advertising design. With a strong passion for books and paper, Linda has been an avid admirer of printers, book artists, printmakers, artists and creative thinkers. She now supports these creative artists and enterprises with an exceptional range of premium Japanese papers and related products. Inspired by the long history of papermaking in Japan and a process perfected over hundreds of years, the washi carried here has been carefully made to use in inspired and creative ways.
