Siwa hat

Siwa hat

Designer Naoto Fukasawa has created a series of hats that are made entirely out of ‘Naoron’, a new version of traditional  Japanese washi-paper developed by washi-paper manufacturer Onao, which withstands both moisture and weight resulting in a lightweight water-resistant material that does not tear easily.

The hats are part of a range of goods which Onao calls SIWA (the name is an anagram of the characters in the word washi — or wasi — and a word meaning, ‘crinkle’ in Japanese) and includes bags, cases and slippers.
