About us


Nagai Paper Store, mainly selling Washi (Japanese traditional paper), was established in 1928, and restructured as Nagai Shigyo Co., Ltd. in 1948. All Japanese paper had been made by hand, but production was successfully mechanized in 1955 without reducing paper quality. As a result of this, we have built a reputation for excellence in our products. We have significantly expanded our product with offerings such as special paper, processed paper, and regular paper. As we expanded further, we began offering chopstick covers in 1959 with our manufacturing department for the foodservice industry. Today, people are more health focused, and that trend is increasing Japanese food popularity. We intend to adapt to those social trends and economic changes by meeting ones needs. Indeed, the new plant that enhanced efficiency with technological progress was built in Satte, Saitama, in July in 1994. We will continually improve technology and develop a broad array of products to be flexible and to suit social changes.
