Every step from mulberry harvesting to the production of this paper is environmentally friendly.

The manufacturing process of Hosokawa paper is highly artisanal and utilizes high-quality natural materials such as paper mulberry (kozo), hemp (asa), and mulberry bark (gampi). The fibers are beaten with wooden mallets until they become soft enough to be transformed into paper. Then, the fibers are mixed with water and filtered through a special bamboo sieve called "su."

The resulting paper is then dried in the sun and hand-polished to create a smooth and uniform surface. The manufacturing process of Hosokawa paper is highly demanding and time-consuming, often taking several weeks to produce a high-quality sheet of paper
