Japanese Momi Kyoseishi - Momi or crinkled papers have a uniquely textured surface and much more cloth-like drape than most other papers. Their texture makes them a unique choice for collage, and their strength and durability makes them particularly well suited for bookbinding and box making. This premium Kyoseishi line is hand crumpled/textured and has a high kozo content. It is treated with konnyaku for extra strength. Konnyaku starch, processed from the tuberous root of the devils tongue plant was traditionally used in Japan to produce a jelly-like substance used in food. Paper treated with konnyaku called momigami (kneaded paper) or kyoseishi (strong paper) is made both stronger and more flexible than untreated paper.
