1. Pencils and notebooks
“Washi” comes from wa – for Japanese, and “shi” for paper. Manufactured from ‘green’ resources, such as the bark of the gampi tree, paper mulberry, mitsumata shrub, bamboo, hemp, or wheat. Washi tape feels like masking tape, and like masking tape, it can easily be removed. That being said, it is like masking tape, if you adhere it to paper, you may be able to remove it, but you will have to work at it and do it slowly; however, if you use it on glass, metal or plastic, it will come off easier.
