Founded in 1923 in Tomii, Kamoi Kakoshi Co., Ltd., began as a manufacturer of industrial masking tapes and fly paper.
The mt masking tape brand was created in 2008 in partnership with three female design graduates. Fascinated by the potential of masking tape as a creative medium, the three designers created a book filled with designs and features, clearing away the concept that masking tape is solely an industrial product.
Deeply impressed, Kamoi Kakoshi Co., Ltd. started development of mt masking tapes in different new colours in response to the designers suggestions. An initial range of twenty colours was completed as a result of repeated trial and error.
mt masking tape made with Japanese washi paper is strong while being extremely thin. It has excellent adhesiveness and can be removed easily without leaving a trace.
