Morisa Green Hemp Leaf Tosa Washi Paper Place Mat (5 sheets)
This place mat is made of Tosa Washi Paper and has a hemp leaf pattern.
This is a traditional Japanese pattern called "Asa-no-ha (hemp leaf)" pattern. The interweaving shapes of straight lines look like leaves and veins. It is a beautiful pattern that reminds us of organic plants in a regular and geometric manner. It also has a meaning of wishing for the healthy growth of children, in reference to the strength and rapid growth of hemp.
This washi paper has a double structure, and the washi paper with a white pattern on it is made by a technique called "Rakusui". Rakusui is a traditional technique to make a pattern on washi paper by dropping water. The technique of making a double-layered paper by applying another sheet of washi on the back of the Rakusui paper is called "Sukiawase".
This place mat is perfect for an individual serving. In addition to being used as a regular place mat, they are also great to place under items displayed on a shelf.
Washi paper does not dissolve when washed and does not tear easily even if folded many times. This place mat can also be used repeatedly by washing it lightly by hand and drying it, and if it gets wrinkled, it can be ironed. When ironing, it is recommended to iron from the reverse side to avoid damaging the texture.
Tosa Washi Paper is Japanese paper made in Ino-cho, Kochi Prefecture, and around Tosa City.
