We have launched a new part of the website, BUMART, where we share our collaborations with designers and artists from all over the world. The famous Japanese artist Tamura Yoshiyasu created an amazing print for our mask in his unique style - a mix of traditional Japanese drawing, manga and western painting.
We are happy that our BUMASK project became popular among Japanese artists. Mostly because paper was always popular in all parts of life in Japan – from the art origami and traditional sky lanterns to interior design and even clothes. Japanese paper or vashi is still used in various ways because of its strengths, beauty and functionality. Nowadays, we observe a rethinking of traditional production and new ways of using paper.
