How to give a vintage look to your washi paper items.
NATSUMIKUMI MATERIAL washi paper is naturally soft and warmer but you can make it even softer as it is supposed to be.
Centuries ago washi paper was used for almost every items of the daily life, such as umbrellas, clothes and accessories.
To make the paper more resistant we would use konjac paste.
The konjac paste is totally natural, odorless and colorless.
Another specificity of washi paper items was their leather aspect.
For a genuine vintage look we recommend that you crumple the paper and then apply the konjac paste.
NATSUMIKUMI MATERIAL recommends that you repeat the process two to three times depending on the result you want to achieve.
