Tsumugi paper — first impressions
Tsumugi is a thick Japanese paper decorated with a linen-like texture of thick “yarns” running along one direction. I bought a sheet at Modulor (Berlin) and first tested it when folding my Double-Blintzed Bird Base Corrugation.
Even for my standards, this paper is very thick (140 gsm) and doesn’t seem suitable for folding anything but corrugations. However, its color is very saturated, and it has a beautiful texture which is supposed to resemble the traditionally woven tsumugi fabric.
