Description: Hanji is the name of the Korean traditional paper made from the bark of mulberry trees called Dak trees and has been around for more than 1,600 years. Hanji is made by hand and is dyed with natural materials. The process of making Hanji is:

1. Peeling off the bark
2. Washing and beaching the fiber
3. Eliminating impurities
4. Pulverizing the fiber
5. Dispersing the crushed fiber in water
6. Addition of mulberry starch
7. Straining the fiber
8. Dehydrating
9. Drying the paper
10. Smoothing the paper

Hanji paper is extremely soft like cotton, but very strong. Historically, in addition to its use in books and notebooks, it was used to cover windows and doors to keep rooms warm and protect them from the wind. Koreans were able to use hanji as door and window screen paper because it is durable and can last over a 1,000 years thanks to the unique process by which it is made. Thanks to its durability and versatility, it was even used to make armor. The paper armor made of layers of hanji stopped arrows. Four historical Korean books made of hanji have lasted so long that they have been designated by UNESCO as Memory of the World Heritage. Thanks to beautiful designs that highlight the textures of hanji paper, it now has many new uses, such as doll making, wrapping paper, material for handicrafts, and letter paper. You can use the hanji paper as origami paper, decoration or for any handicrafts. Naturally acid free. Size 6 x 6 inches. 12 sheets per package.
