There is no such word as "tortuorous ".
"To Do" list
The link to interlog.com remains broken, but an archived version is still available (minus the odd picture).
I'm rather confused by some of the "Applications" listed here. I thought kimonos were made out of silk, for example. And how is washi used for sewing? Can anyone back up these statements?

All above applications are applicable. Quick clothing examples are here:
Even though mixed media clothing would be whatever base washi is actually made from...not the paper itself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Washimaster (talk • contribs) 20:45, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
Where does classical 'Imperial Japanese paper' fit in? Since the 19th century, many deluxe editions of American and European books have been printed in a small number on this distinctive paper with its subtle gloss and vaguely fibery structure. What is the Japanese name of it? Is it 'Insetsu-Kioku'? But I don't see that name on the Washi- and Japanese tissue-pages. Glatisant 11:03, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
Made from Rice?
Should this be 'rice straw?' The term 'rice paper' is still in circulation for Japanese papers; for example, an educated Swiss German gentleman asked me in Feb 2016 about mulberry paper. I pointed out that the word is similar in German - 'Maulbeere.' The word 'kozo' is not in general use, I believe. He said: 'Isn't it made from rice?' I suggested he try to eat it.
