  • If your are unsure what to send, consider what you hope to receive and choose accordingly.


  • Please rate a 5 if you receive 8 different washi samples, 4 of which should correspond to your hint list or profile (but be flexible—your partner may not be able to fulfil all of your wishes!)

  • As this is an international swap, please allow time for shipping.

  • Please message your partner first before rating a 1.
