 The Wisdom of the Orient Cat Deluxe Edition was created utilizing ancient methods of papermaking introduced to Japan in 610 by the Korean Buddhist priest Doncho. These papermaking skills have been passed down from generation to generation with the intent of producing paper that is not only functional, but also reflects the soul and spirit of the maker.
