This BARAYTA paper uniquly use Japanese Washi (KYOKUSHI, Echizen Washi in Fukui Prefecture) as base paper.

Consists of 3 layers of Japanese Kyokushi washi, vellum layer and ink receiving layer,  Therefore, in monochrome output, a very high degree of gradation and black tightness without turbidity can be obtained.

In addition, since it does not contain optical brightener, it can express universal whiteness and softness semipermanently.

This whiteness is the same as the old black-and-white silver halide photographs when it comes to monochrome output. Also, in color output, it is possible to express soft color reproducibility that is a bit different from conventional silk paper and glossy paper.
