Kozo is paper pulp made from fibers originating in Thailand—from the inner bark of the Mulberry plant. Of the Latin genus Broussonetia Papyrifera, Thai Kozo is botanically identical to the Japanese variety. However, the climate it’s grown in is much warmer, resulting in different characteristics—including its attractive, sandy color and the fact that it can be cleaned very easily with a damp cloth.
To fully appreciate PaperScapes made with pulp from Thai Kozo fibers, please visit our studio & gallery at The Quonset Hut Shops, 20 Church Street, Guilford, CT—just north of the historic Guilford Green.

Thai Kozo lends itself beautifully to an extraordinary range of textures and rich pigmentation—resulting in gorgeous colors, exotic shapes and a sensual quality. Wrapped on glass and other materials of all shapes and sizes, Thai Kozo adds a whole other dimension to an otherwise ordinary vase.
