Bamboo/kozo I don't know where you can get. Regular kozo and/or unryu, hanji and other handmade papers on the other hand I do know where you can get. Aside from serious local art stores you can purchase those online - I usually use www.origami-shop.com (or origami-shop.us if you're in the Americas). I know there are other web shops, and they are likely also good. Quick note though, if you want to use handmade papers like japanese kozo, you will have to learn or know how to treat it with methylcellulose, starch paste or other resizing agents for optimal results. Hope that helps! :)
