A couple weekends ago, while strolling around Ginza, we ended up at the Itoya flagstore – always a good spot to find cool products and ideas. They had a very nice exhibition of hundreds of various Japanese papers on pin badges spread across a huge table. It was beautiful.

和紙 (washi), Japanese traditional paper, is produced by artisans all across the country but one of the hotspots is the Mino area in Gifu prefecture (see Mino washi) which is also the birthplace of our collection of ceramic earrings!
