Crumpled washi paper (MOMIGAMI 揉み紙)

Crumpled washi paper is wrinkled from crumpling.

Crumpling paper is a method to produce a feel of cloth and momigami was used as paper for mounting in the tea ceremony during medieval times.
For waterproofing, people paint "DOUSA どうさ" which is liquid mixed animal grue and hide glue. It is strongest washi paper.
