fu-wa

“fu-wa (Foowa)" is a basket woven with fibers of Japanese washi paper, kozo.
Despite it being made of paper and looking sensitive. It is durable enough for daily use, as the fiber of kozo is strong. Surprisingly light, supple and strong, you can enjoy “fu-wa” in various ways such as a tray or an accessory plate. You can also use a thin tray as a lid.
The manufacturer, Igarashi Paper Co., Ltd., also grows raw materials of kozo for “fu-wa” in-house with their own fields, putting heart into every single fiber.
