kozo This is an Asian plant, the mulberry, harvested annually for its strong fibers by the Japanese and Koreans. The inner bark of the shoots of the mulberry produces long fibers that do not shrink or expand, and they make very strong and absorbent shrinks. Properly prepared, it can be fountain pen friendly, but most is not because the Asian tradition is to write with a brush.
