In the late Fall as persimmon trees begin to bear fruit its time at Awagami to start thinking about Kakishibu (natural persimmon tannin). This rich brown pigment has been used for waterproofing Japanese paper umbrellas since antiquity and these days, kakishibu has come back into fashion as an eco-friendly colorant for clothing and accessories. The striped paper covers of this book are hand brushed with kakishibu to reveal a lovely stripe pattern. Inside you will find fairly smooth heavyweight washi pages suitable for writing, drawing, collage, stamping, scrapbooking, etc….Each 19-page book is unique
