History: Mulberry paper ("Broussonetia Papyrifera"), often called "Kozo Paper", "Washi", "Hanji", or "Rice Paper," is derived from the Paper Mulberry tree's bark. Originating in ancient China for calligraphy and art, its use expanded to Japan and Korea, solidifying its cultural importance in East Asia. The paper's hallmark is its traditional, labor-intensive creation: the manually harvested bark is boiled, cleaned, and transformed into pulp. This pulp either air-dries for handmade paper or is machined. The outcome is a distinctive textured paper, celebrated for its quality and historical significance.
