Shipping is calculated by computer and is not always accurate. When in doubt, feel free to email me a list of the items you would like to order, and I'll get back to you with an accurate amount. Another option is to place the items you'd like in your cart, take a picture of your screen with the order, and email it to me. If you use the web page shipping algorithm and are overcharged, I'll certainly notify you and refund the difference.

When in doubt, please contact me first.


Shibugami comes in a range of sizes and thicknesses. The #10 thickness is the best all-purpose weight. It's made of hand-made mulberry paper that has had many layers laminated together using persimmon tannin. It's then smoked to preserve the paper and speed the curing of the persimmon. After smoking, it's set aside for a year to cure before being placed on the market.

Synthetic substitutes are also available. They don’t expand when wet, as natural paper will, and are becoming more popular among younger dyers.
