Japanese Calligraphy (Shodo) / Hanshi

Hanshi is thin white Washi made for calligraphy. There are several sizes of the Washi for calligraphy. Saiga is using Hanshi(334x242mm) of the most general size. Hanshi is the smallest size as paper of calligraphy. And Hanshi is used generally for practice of calligraphy. Although we are preparing the frame for Hanshi, you can buy only a work. We also accept custom-made (design of your name, favorite words, tattoo design, etc.) work.
