|Kamikoromo are paper robes made of handmade washi Japanese paper.
This handmade washi is made from the native Tosa kozo tree with traditional methods.
Sticky and strong paper is required to construct kamikoromo.
Konjac paste is added for strength.
kozo are cut at the root and steamed in a barrel over a fire in order to separate the bark. The bundles of fibers are placed in a cold stream for one to three days. The branches are boiled and stripped of their outer bark and then dried. The fibers are then boiled, placed in running water, and naturally bleached. The rinsed fibers are placed in a strainer floating in water for further cleaning and then laid on a board and beaten. Once they have dried overnight and been softened by stamping or hand-rubbing, they are ready to be made into kamikoromo.
Their lightness and heat-retaining quality made them popular among travelers and Haiku poets.
Kamikoromo embody the sense of wabi-sabi, emphasizing the rustic beauty of nature.
