Hosho-shi translates into 'document paper'; a name which reflects the tradition and use of the paper. Hosho is a paper with a long history and its production is believed to have begun in the 14th century, in the Echizen district of today's Fukui Prefecture. During the Edo period, hosho was a luxury item, made only from the best Kozo for the use by samurai and aristocracy. By mid-18th century it was the preferred paper for Ukiyo-e printing. Over time, other additions and substitutions were made to the hosho pulp, and the result is the wide range of hosho papers available today.
