Yamane Meishi - Washi business cards
Yamane Meishi (meishi means business cards in Japanese) are beautiful washi business cards made in Tottori. The area, known as Inshu in old days, has been producing Inshu washi for over 1,000 years.
Yamane Meishi take ink very well and are light yet sturdy with subtle fibers of kozo still visible. Kozo is a member of mulberry family and one of the plants to make washi. Kozo and other plants used as raw materials for washi have much longer fibers than wood pulp, resulting in supple and durable paper. With a warm touch of washi Yamane Meishi are perfect for your special business cards.
