Caligraphy will be made on japanese paper, mashi, or japanese cedar tree.

All our calligraphy are made on japanese paper, 
mashi, or japanese cedar tree.

Traditional Japanese paper made from hemp. Originally thought to have been made from scraps of hemp cloth or hemp bark. Considered the oldest paper made in Japan. Its strong, pliant, glossy quality makes it a very high grade paper. Mashi was used for imperial proclamations, for copying sutras, and for poetry. Documents and sutras on mashi paper from Sui and Tang China (618-907) and from the Nara and Heian periods are still intact. 
Production seems to have gradually declined after the Heian period, probably due to a lack of raw material and the low efficiency of production. Besides white mashi there are various other colors such as red, purple and yellow. Mashi in a long format is called choumashi.

Cedar tree
Japanese cedar is a tall Evergreen tree with wide spreading branches. The wood of it is very hard and has a sweet smell. It is one of the most suitable wood for calligraphy.
