Our Kikusui Parchment is a thin, crisp, easily-folded, Japanese paper of a luxurious cream color. Kikusui is softer than most Western papers and has no finish on one side; the side without a finish is softer while the reverse side, with a finish, is slick but not glossy. Not only can you fold Kikusui Parchment, but you can print on it, too! Each package of Kikusui has 50 sheets and is 15cm (6") square.

We personally select all of the papers in the Paper Jade Exclusives category. They are cut and packaged to our specifications. You won't find these selections anywhere else!
