Of all the Keijusha shades, these grey shades most strongly show the influence of European style patterns in the early part of the 20th Century. This repetitive floral pattern, reminiscent of the fleur-de-lis but maybe representing the more Japanese Iris, is colourful without being brash. The texture of the dye and paper gives the grey a calming soft variation. Perfectly suited to a bedside or desktop shade.

Located in the beautiful town of Yatsuo, the Keijusha paper company is on the banks of the Ida river where the water for their washi making comes from.
Based on historic designs of Serizawa Keisuke from the early 20th Century, you can immediately see the Western influence on the patterns. But these patterns would only work with the strong, waterproof paper perfected in Yatsuo town.
In the 20th century, there was only one company left with the skills to fulfil Serizawa's expectations, and that was the Keijusha Paper Company.
