Hanji is a traditional Korean paper that is mainly used for handicraft work, artwork, and documents. Hanji is made from cotton, a natural fiber material, and has a history of thousands of years. Below are some important characteristics and information about Hanji.

Raw materials and manufacturing process: The main raw material of Hanji is mainly cotton. To make paper, cotton fibers are cut into appropriate sizes, soaked in water to make them soft, and then washed to remove impurities. Then, after drying again, pulp is formed, which is pressed and molded several times to make paper.

Hanji is an important part of Korean culture, and it is a material that requires constant attention and preservation efforts as one of the areas of traditional crafts.

It's a beautiful idea to use Hanji, a traditional Korean paper, for photo prints. Hanji is one of the precious materials representing the history and culture of Korea and has been used in various arts and crafts. When you print your photos on Korean paper, you can get unique and beautiful results due to the combination of modern images and traditional materials.

Hanji is a very thin and sensitive material, so care must be taken when printing and protecting it. If you want to do it professionally, it is better to enlist the help of a Hanji craftsman or a workshop. Through this, you will be able to create wonderful works that harmonize the traditional beauty of Korea with modern images.
