While fulfilling the fundamental roles of paper in providing protection, transportation, and communication, these packaging papers convey a warm and gentle image. FSC certification attests to low impact on the environment.
A high softwood content provides strength, and special surface coatings enhance folding performance.
White (KIHOUSHI-FS) and black (KURO KIHOUSHI) papers are available in two finishes, U (Uncoated) and C (Coated).

KIHOUSHI-FS is available in 3 textures - deep rough, medium rough, and light rough – in the neutral white that is paper’s natural color when manufactured without fluorescent dyes.
KURO KIHOUSHI has a neutral black without bias towards any particular color. The dye is applied at the pulp stage, so even the edges are a beautiful, uniform black.
