This washi paper notebook is hand-dyed with tannins from persimmon fruits. This process, Kakishibu, has waterproof, antiseptic, and insect-repellent effects, and has been used for various purposes since the Heian period. Each cover is individually painted by hand before binding. Watoji is a traditional Japanese bookbinding technique that binds the pages using thread. The 40 pages of Shirakawa paper are suitable for water-based pens, ballpoint pens, and writing brushes.

Since Kakishibu is a natural dye, the colour may change with time.

Handcrafted in Yoshinogawa
