Sasawashi Flat Bamboo paper
  • Sasawashi Flat Bamboo paper

    Sasawashi Flat- Japanese paper yarn is made from Kumasasa. Kumasasa is bamboo, grown at an elevation of 1000 meters. It has a raffia like appearance with a beautiful natural luster that is unique to Japanese paper. Unlike 'sasawashi' the yarn is flat and thinner with no twist.


    The natural antibacterial, deodorant, and UV-blocking properties of kumazasa help keep the item clean. The natural deodorizing properties prevent mildew growth and fiber deterioration. While the water-repellent dyeing process gives it a water-repellent and stain-resistant quality.


    Sasawashi is suitable for a range of projects. Basketry work, Knitting or Crochet hats and bags.
