Most of the Shoji are made in Cyprus. The veins are fine and much appreciated by the Japanese.
The wood is unvarnished, natural and living.
The translucent nature is important the light expressing itself in a playful way.
The pattern on the shoji are determined and created by half-laps which are integrated into the panel as are pilot wheels in European type windows.
We propose 3 different types of Shoji :
1 – Japanese paper (See SHOJIGAMI)
2 – Japanese paper. (See WARLON) coated with plastic
3 – 1.5 mm thick pane, translucent, unbreakable and moreover extremely attractive!

Fusuma is composed of three parts :
1 – The inside of the panel
2 – The frames
3 – The two surfaces

Wooden braces are used in the inside of the panel. The frames are often tinted. (in black, dark brown, light brown or in natural cypress.
Both outside surfaces are covered with Japanese paper.
The most important is, of course, the side which gives onto the room and reflects the image of that.
