Washi tape comes from Japan and reflects the country’s cultural obsession with anything that is cute. It feels like masking tape, but it looks like the kind of ribbon that you would sew onto a dress or other high-end item. It comes in a range of patterns, sizes, and colors and is made from natural fibers like bamboo. It is both functional and durable, so you can use it just about anywhere.
