SIWA is a series of Japanese paper brands announced in collaboration with product designer Naoto Fukasawa, using a new material developed by Dainao Co., Ltd. for "unbreakable *shoji paper".
With a simple design and color, it cancels out the folk art image of Japanese paper and proposes a new shape of paper.
Naoron is a new material made by mixing pulp, which is the raw material of paper, and polyolefin fiber, and using the Japanese paper manufacturing method.
It is a very strong paper, and it is 5 times stronger than ordinary shoji paper.
It clears a load capacity test of 10 kg and It is a new material that overturns the common sense of paper that it does not generate toxic gas even when burned, and its strength increases further when it is wet!
