About: Paper Wasp
What's with the wasp?
Dotted washis, unryu, kozo - even vellum envelopes - we owe them all to our patron insect, the humble paper wasp.
The diligent paper wasp creates its nest by chewing bark and leaves into a paper-like pulp, and thus receives our affectionate designation as the original paper maker.
So, in tribute to our fellow paper aficionado, fold yourself an origami cup and offer a papery toast to the insect who started it all!
