The Awagami Factory in Tokushima prefecture produces Awa washi (paper) with a 1,300-year history. Awa washi, made from kozo (paper mulberry), is known for its handmade quality, providing strength, tear-resistance, and a soft, gentle touch. During the Edo period (1603-1868), indigo-dyed Awa washi became popular across Japan, remaining a specialty of Tokushima. While Awa washi declined in many regions after World War II due to the introduction of western paper, Awagami Factory, established in 1950, has championed the appeal of this traditional craft both domestically and internationally. Today, the company has diversified the applications of Awa washi to adapt to changing trends, earning recognition from the art industry.
