Where "Kozo & Co" comes from

My love for Japanese paper started when I took a course in bookbinding more than 15 years ago, and now I can proudly call myself a Japanese paper addict.

Not a connoisseur yet, unfortunately... Too many different papers, but so many possibilities! Different formats, handmade, shades of white and ivory,... Different fibers: kozo ,gampi or mitsumata. Hence our name: Kozo & Co.

Most of the Japanese papers are made out of kozo fibers. Kozo is a mulberry tree that paper-makers grow to harvest the inner bark for making paper.
