This humble papermaker Ko Kado exemplifies Kyoto’s commitment to time honored traditional crafts. The wee, one-man shop and studio in Kyoto’s Nishijin ward showcases his elegant handmade designs made from a wide variety of woodblocks in the classic karakami “stamping” style and is no stranger to paper pilgrims stocking up on his unique designs. Every piece in his studio/shop is an original ranging from elegant and subtle stationery, postcards and envelopes to textured wallpaper and translucent fusuma paper for sliding screen doors.
