Washi tape is a decorative paper tape that originates from Japan (washi literally translates as wa meaning ‘Japanese’ and shi meaning ‘paper’). These versatile low-tack tapes (a bit like masking tapes) will become a stationery essential once you welcome them into your life. They are both very pretty and functional. Uses range from page markers, to attaching photos and loose papers to journals, albums, sketchbooks, planners and more!
A particular highlight was seeing it being used in the recent Netflix show Inventing Anna, when Vivian uses it to stick her research onto a wall.
The beauty of these is that they are usually repositionable, without leaving a sticky residue. Made from plants rather than trees, it is really strong. But unlike plastic based tape, you can tear it off without the need for scissors (or teeth - guilty).
