What is Japanese washi paper?

Japanese washi paper is a strong paper tissue that comes in different patterns and colors, and is the perfect medium for stitching on paper. Its strength comes from its varied constituents, which include fiber from the Gampi tree, hemp, rice and bamboo. Its translucency fails to reveal just how strong the lightweight tissue can be.
