Tradition and Techniques of Shogado

Shogado Kyoto stationery | Komorebi Stationery

Since its establishment in Kyoto in 1964, Shogado has evolved from selling traditional Japanese bound books to creating stationery and miscellaneous goods crafted from washi paper. This transition reflects their expertise in utilizing authentic washi sourced from renowned production areas like Fukui Prefecture. Particularly noteworthy are the products hand-dyed by skilled artisans in Kyoto, known as Yuzen paper, distinguished by their superior texture and coloration, setting them apart from mass-produced goods.
