The Japanese paper (washi) maker ONAO and industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa have teamed together to create the SIWA series. Fukasawa discovered that the special texture of Naoron, a paper developed by ONAO that doesn't tear easily, emerged when the paper was crumpled. He has designed several products for everyday use that benefit from the light weight, thoughness and simple beauty of the Naoron paper. The name SIWA is both a reversing of the characters in the word washi meaning "japanese paper", and a japanese word meaning, "crease" which refers to the lines made when folding paper. As with leather goods, these washi products are lovingly individually crafted. Onao is a family run company, with more than 150 years of papermaking history. Based in Yamanishi, a rural area near Mt. Fuji, Onao still operates Japans oldest (and, they like to point out, slowest) paper machine where the paper is cut off the wheel by hand.
