For creating Japanese woodblock prints, the handmade paper, called washi, is indispensable. Its peculiarity lays in the use of bast with long fibres und a special papermaking technique, nagashi-zuki, which is unique in the world. In opposite to Western woodblock printing, where a layer of oil-based ink is printed on top of the paper, during Japanese woodblock printing the water-based ink is pressed deeply into the paper. The very absorbent and strong Japanese paper is able to absorb the ink evenly and to resist the often repeated printing without loosing its shape.
