Friday Night Flicks: Sekishu-Banshi

One of the joys of the Interweb is the ‘accidental find’. Today’s video is about traditional paper making in the region of Iwame in the Shimane Prefecture of Japan. The paper making technique used in the video is reputed to produce the strongest kozo paper in Japan, and I can well believe it!



Perhaps you will take a moment this weekend to examine a piece of paper more closely!
