When talking about handmade washi, one often hears the word "mimi-tsuki" being used. When a large sheet is cut into smaller sizes, the edges are cut straight. Handmade washi are characterized with fluffy fibers resulting in furry edges on the four edges of the sheet. These untrimmed furry edges unique to handmade washi are called "mimi-tsuki".
