Using papers manufactured by Awagami is a "transformational" experience. From the moment you see your image on these traditional Japanese (washi) papers or feel them in your hands, the only word that comes to mind is 'Superb'. For 300 years, Awagami has been making paper in Tokushima Japan and recently created 'Awagami Inkjet Paper' (A.I.J.P) as a completely unique paper line for the inkjet world. Each sheet has a truly handmade look and feel and made from renewable, neutral pH and completely eco-friendly materials as Kozo (mulberry), Mitsumata, Bamboo and Hemp. Designed for professional fine art use, A.I.J.P papers are created with old world Japanese papermaking techniques focusing on museum-quality and archival permanence. Made with a more subtle coating than Western inkjet papers,images printed on A.I.J.P will unite with the paper itself creating a singular work of art. Available in popular European (A-system) sizes, these papers need to be experienced to be believed. Best used with Epson Velvet Fine Art Media Setting.
Awagami Inkjet Paper Premio series of papers are made with double layers, therefore it holds excellent heaviness, which made this paper easy to handle, getting wrinkled and damaged are relatively rare compare to existing series of Awagami Inkjet Paper. In addition, by making this paper double layered, the vibrant color and finest expression in details are possible since it is not sheer and a set-off of color would not be occurred.
Premio Unryu 165gsm is easy to handle, extra thick and double laminated version of this extraordinary paper. Unryu has a soft classic look with the distinctive cloud like pattern of Kozo fibers. This is a very special paper you have to "shoot for" rather than just print any old photograph on it. The beautiful random background pattern is a feature to take advantage of. Think negative space...
