Persimmon astringency Paper

Persimmon astringency contains a large amount of tannin, which is absorbed by the fiber of paper and converted into an insoluble substance, resulting in water resistance and antiseptic action. The property of allowing air to pass through but not water to pass through is useful, and it is used for paper mold and Karibari (drying panel) for the work of making hanging scrolls.
