What is washi tape anyways?
In Japan, it’s known as masking tape (マスキングテープ) and the most renowned brand of washi tape is simply called mt – which stands for “masking tape“. The term “washi tape” refers to the fact that the tapes are made from Japanese rice paper and differentiates it from typical masking tape you might find in the hardware store.
And according to Omiyage
The whole washi tape phenomenon started in 2006. A group of artists approached a Japanese masking tape manufacturer – Kamoi Kakoshi – and presented them with a book of art they had created using the company’s industrial masking tapes. The artists requested that Kamoi Kakoshi manufacture colourful masking tapes for artists.This was the start of mt masking tape. In the beginning, there were 20 colours, colours designed to bring out the beauty of the rice paper (or washi) used to make the tape. The tapes were a hit – with artists, crafters, and design lovers – both in Japan and, gradually, internationally. With success came new colours, patterns and sizes.
It’s become insanely popular over time with crafters everywhere creating brilliant uses for it, and its cute designs!
