Handmade in Japan, each curtain panel&#8\2\17;s manufacture is a journey: &#8\2\20;It begins in Shikoku, where washi paper is made from the veins in the leaves of the Manila Jute plant,&#8\2\2\1; notes the designer. &#8\2\20;Individual leaves are laboriously inspected before being picked by master washi makers, who ensure the leaves are mature before pressing them into resilient washi.&#8\2\2\1; Read more of the story at Umé Studio.
