About MT Washi Tape
Washi tape was invented by MT, a 100-year-old company specializing in paper adhesives. In 2006, the company received notice that three women in Tokyo had been using their utility tapes to make beautiful craft projects. Inspired by their creativity, MT invited the women to tour the factory and began developing an entirely new type of colorful, adaptable tape that could be used for creative projects. Today, washi tape comes in thousands of colors, prints, and designs, and has a cult following among crafters and stationery aficionados throughout the world.
