Kotodocan Yu-Zen Washi Tea Tin Canisters $18.95 - $22.95

Decades of Japanese tradition are integral to the design and beauty of these simple canisters.

​Washi paper, made from kozo (mulberry) bark, Gampi bushes, or Mitsumata bushes, was used in Japan for art, writing, bookbinding, and for home decor such as screens on sliding doors or room dividers. The process of producing the paper is intensive, requiring time to harvest and process the fibers, press the water out of the pulp, dry in the sun and finally, cut to size.
