"Washi Spirit"

Man is the river. Man is the rain. Man is the wave.
Water is the medium.
And Washi is the waters spirit.
Its first secret is awakening. All life comes from water. So the
Washi does.
Its second secret is relieving. Born floating in the water, Washi
transmits weightlessness.
Its third secret is soothing. Moving with the waters flow, the
fibers gather naturally in the most harmonic way.
Its forth secret is reminding. Slowly build up by the movement,
its structure is the memory of the time passed for its making.
Its fifth secret is enlightening. Light moves through the fibers
until it is released according to the Washi’s structure in never
ending ways.
We want to share these secrets and provide people the
awakening, relieving, soothing, reminding and enlightening
presence of washi in their homes.

"Washi Spirit" 和紙精神

「紙は神に通ず」.
人類はその長い歴史を経て、極東の地「日本」で和紙を手に入れることができました。
和紙とは、人間が水を介して作り出す、尊い精神のたまものなのです。

人類の起源と同じように、和紙は水から生まれます。
海藻が大海に揺らめくが如く、和紙繊維は柔らかな水の動きに踊ります。
静かに降り積もる雪のように、その繊維は積み重なり、ともに絡み合いながら一枚の和紙
になってゆきます。
素晴らしい和紙を手にした時、私たちは、その紙が仕上がるまでに経てきた、多くの職人
の尊い作業と熱意に思いを馳せずにはいられません。
このように表情豊かな和紙に光をかざすだけで、私たちは光の無限な広がりを体感するこ
とができるのです。

日本で生まれ日本人が育んできた、まさに日本民族の精神的礎(いしずえ)である「和
紙」の楽しさと素晴らしさを、日本国内はもとより、世界中の人びとと共に分かち合うこ
とができるように、杉原商店はこれからも、様々な和紙商品を提案し続けてまいります。
杉原吉直
