About MT | MT Tape

What is MT tape

Colorful and simple, MT tape can be torn by hand and is easy to reposition. The tape can be used on paper, objects and walls. MT is semi-transparent so it can be especially pretty when it's layered, it’s also easy to write on so it’s handy for making notes or messages.

MT is the original brand of washi paper masking tape, created by the 100 year old company Kamoi Kakoshi and produced in Japan. The superior level of ‘just right’ adhesion allows MT to be easily repositioned and to be used on painted walls without damaging paint.

MT is ideal for temporary decoration, for tiny objects to entire rooms, and for ordinary or special occasions throughout the day, from sealing a lunch bag to making a special gift wrap.

Winner of many international awards.

Origins of MT

Since long ago, paper masking tape has been used industrially in all kinds of ways. Kamoi Kakoshi in Japan has been making specialty paper adhesives for almost 100 years.

In 2006, the company received an email from 3 women in Tokyo who were using their industrial tapes in beautiful craft projects. Amazed by this surprising and wonderful usage, Kamoi Kakoshi invited the women to visit their factory. This visit inspired the development of an entirely new and original category of tape: MT brand washi tape, colorful tape which is easy to tear by hand and reposition on nearly any surface.

MT washi masking tape is now sold throughout the world in hundreds of colors and patterns.

MT has become a part of daily life, adding a little color everywhere.
