Lightweight rice paper (made from Kozo fiber) traditionally used to practice lettering and Sumi-e painting strokes. This package of Hanshi paper contains 500 sheets and is 9 1/2 x 13 inches in size. It is wonderful for brush writing or calligraphy. The paper is double sided; very smooth on one side and slightly textured on the other. The paper is not bound; it is a package of loose sheets- making this ideal for classroom use.
