What is Washi Tape?
Washi tape is a decorative adhesive tape that is made from traditional Japanese paper (wa meaning ‘Japanese’ and shi meaning ‘paper’) that works great for craft or journaling. Most papers are made from tree pulp, but washi comes from Japanese shrubs. It’s durable, waterproof, and heatproof….not to mention it is also biodegradable.
