Hiyori's oil-blotting paper made of 100% natural washi paper without adding any chemical has soft and smooth texture and high oil-absorbing power. It is manufactured with the same dozens of steps as gold beating method. Special washi which was originally used in the process of gold leaf manufacturing was first diverted to oil blotting paper. The process of continuous beating thin paper placed between each gold paper which is stretched by a machine to make it even thinner is called “Zumiuchi”. The zumiuchi used in the process was also called "Furuya paper”, and it was regarded as the most suitable paper for oil blotting paper. The fiber of the paper was well-loosened and it was perfect for absorbing oil from the skin. Hiyori's oil-blotting paper is also carefully crafted using the same method as gold beating and finished in excellent quality.
