The founder of the Heizaburo Iwano I workshop was born in 1878. He has learned the papermaking trade from his father, who apart from washi dealt also with the production of silk. He became famous all over Japan as well as abroad as a manufacturer of a unique sheet of the diameter exceeding 4 metres, which was used by Taikan Yokoyama (横山大観) and Kanzan Shimomura (下村観山) as canvass for their painting. Until today, this work of art can be admired in the main lobby of the library at the Waseda University in Tokyo. Another important work is held at the main Zen temple - Eiheiji (more than 5 metres in width and length).

Today the workshop cultivates the family traditions and produces top quality paper, appreciated by renowned artists. It is one of the largest hand production facilities in Echizen and employs around 30 persons, whose exceptional skills allow them to produce large-scale sheets.
