Washi: the key to the success of the Japanese lampshade

A paper made by hand for 1300 years in Japan from long interwoven mulberry fibers, which is sometimes given the wrong name of rice paper. Thanks to this flexible, solid and light material, the Japanese lampshade with paper that is not entirely transparent, takes shape under a voluptuous look, round curves and promises very soft lighting.
