The lamps are constructed with washi which is a kind of handmade paper of good texture, durability and translucence.

The word "washi" is composed of "wa" which means "japanese," and "shi" which means "paper". It refers to Japanese paper handmade using traditional methods, derived from the ancient art of papermaking.

The washi is achieved with very fine handwork. This paper has been used for centuries in Japanese homes for their ability to filter the light, softening the intensity and creating subdued lighting.

The washi is traditionally produced using vegetable fibers from bamboo, hemp, rice, mulberry and other local plants.

Since 2014, the washi has been associated in the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
