MIDORI

The MIDORI brand is our core brand, which began as a producer of writing paper and envelopes in 1950. Since then, we have continued to develop a range of design-focused products that will enrich and add color to people’s daily lives. MIDORI has maintained its base in design and paper while evolving into a comprehensive manufacturer of stationery items, where our mainstay paper products that allow users to express themselves freely are now accompanied by functional writing materials that people can enjoy using with our paper items.
