For the first release of 2023, the atelier showcases its signature blend of traditional craftsmanship and modern production, with a Labs diary groundbreaking in every way: Japanese washi, both inside and out.
On the outside of the diary? A specially made washi-cotton blend, featuring a yarn woven from 50 per cent authentic Japanese washi paper and 50 per cent organic cotton. The paper and cotton fibres are interlinked during the spinning process to reinforce each other before being dyed and loomed.
The end result: an extremely light but durable blended fabric with the combined properties of paper and cotton: slightly sandy to the touch under one's hand, and rich with sensation, with the durability of woven cloth.
