Handmade isewashi

Washi is made from barks of plants.
Pick up fibers from a bast inside an epidermis,
and carefully remove the impurity components from the fibers.
As the next step, beat and unravel the fibers,
and put them in a vat filled with water.
Scoop dispersed fibers from the vat with a deckle one by one.
Stretch a sheet formed by the screen on a plate to dry.
At last, beautiful washi with equal thickness is produced.
Depending on the use, the handmade IseWashi's raw material is
blended Kouzo, Mitumata, Ganpi and/or Basewo
with thick liquid extracted from the roots of Tororoaoi
to disperse the fibers evenly in the water.
