Since its formation Kaminoshigoto has been producing and selling traditional Japanese lantern Washi. They also distribute Washi related products and a variety of Mino Washi, and have expanded their business into Washi printing using new technologies such as silkscreen and inkjet printing. Whilst continuing with traditional craftsmanship, they are also developing their own products and new technologies. Taking advantage of their accumulated knowledge, Kaminoshigoto is always seeking new possibilities, committed to enriching lives with high quality products made from Mino Washi.
Writing and drawing are the legacy of thought and Oboeru is a Japanese word for memories. The collection features Mino Washi papers, greetings cards and screen-printed notebooks, combined with traditional binding techniques and gold leafing. Designers, writers and artists always carry notebooks, and Japan is filled with inspiring observations, insights and memories that quickly fill them with amusing words and etiquette. The Japanese language itself is beautiful, even if you don’t understand the meaning, with its birdsong-like sounds often compared to Italian.
