Do Something Creative Every Day
paper wasp

What's with the wasp?

Dotted washis, unryu, kozo - even vellum envelopes - we owe them all to our patron insect, the humble paper wasp.

The diligent paper wasp creates its nest by chewing bark and leaves into a paper-like pulp, and thus receives our affectionate designation as the original paper maker.

So, in tribute to our fellow paper aficionado, fold yourself an origami cup and offer a papery toast to the insect who started it all!
