Characteristics of washi fiber


In the process of making washi paper, natural plant fibers undergo physical washing , hammering, twisting and air drying, a stable and unique porous structure is formed. It lays the foundation for other characteristics of washi paper fiber.

1. It has the breathable, refreshing texture of pure linen fiber, while it is soft, light, comfortable, without the slightest tingling feeling;

2. As mentioned above, the porous structure forms a micro tubular air circulation system, which enable it to be superior in moisture absorption and release, it will not stick to the skin even if you sweat.

3. Natural deodorization effect :

Tested by Japanese authorities (the data are as follows), “washi”

paper fibers can significantly reduce the odor of ammonia, acetic acid and isovaleric acid.  It is durable after being washed many times.

The data hereby enclosed is that of after washing 10 times.  

In 2010, Japanese female astronauts adopted “washi”fiber

underwear to overcome the odor problem caused by inconvenient

washing in spaceship, and eventually the “washi” underwear was highly appraised for its distinguished deodorization property.

4. Superior in thermal insulation property :

According to test of Japanese authorities, the thermal conductivity

Of “washi” fiber is 0.06(W/M.K), while that of wool and cotton is

 0.37 and 0.54 respectively. Therefore, garment made by “washi” fiber Can make you feel much warmer than that of wool or cotton.

5. Natural anti-UV effect : according to the test report below, the UV shielding rate reaches 97% .

6. Washable and abrasion-resistant, no pilling, no hairiness; Also refer to the above test report, anti-pilling level 5.
