So I went looking up kites today and ended up looking at paper.

The type of paper I'm talking about is washi (和紙). Now what spurred me to really think about this was the fact that originaly this paper was made in winter. The process needed to be done then so as to have the coldest water to stop bacteria from eating the paper. Talk about cold work.


The other interesting part of this paper was just the sheer amount of uses it is, well, used for. Toys, calligraphy, unbrellas and even bento boxes! Cool stuff!
