The hemp paper gives a gentle, soft, mysterious light. You can see some of the bulb through this paper, but only glimpses. The organic textured pattern of the paper is reflected in the shadows too. Hemp is quite rare as a paper and it will lose it's bright whiteness and soften a tiny bit as it ages.

Meet the Maker:

Fushitani Shouten

Fushitani san’s father started the company in 1962 after completing a traditional ten-year apprenticeship. This family company keeps using traditional techniques and materials but also seeks to innovate. They have developed new styles of chōchin (Japanese paper lights) like the double-layered shades and sectioned shades.

For Fushitani san, tradition is innovation, accepting new challenges is a necessity for the future. His main motivation is introducing Japanese paper lampshades to overseas and connecting people in the world through his works. Half of his business is firmly in traditional Japan: making lamps for temples and restaurants, but the other half is making modern paper lamp shades for both the domestic and overseas market.
