I have stopped making this particular version of the Step lamp as my paper source for Japanese papers has closed it's doors. Hopefully I'll find a new source and continue making. I may have enough paper to make one or two more.

With a strong fibrous texture, Step Kinwashi Dark resembles classic lamps from the 1950s and a wonderful golden glow. Kinwashi translates to "Gold Washi". This highly translucent and decorative paper owes its name to glossy golden Manila hemp fibers. These long fibers are beaten boiled, bleached and then mixed with thick Kozo fibers to give the paper its distinctive appearance.
