Our Paper, Hanji – Analysis

The NRICH published the report Our Paper, Hanji – Analysis based on an analysis of 48 kinds of Hanji, or Korean traditional paper.
Hanji is a unique handmade Korean paper known for its preservability. This report includes 48 kinds of Hanji manufactured by combining different raw materials and Choji (sheet-formation) techniques, resulting in different colors and preservability levels.
The results can be used to create a standard quality plan for the use of Hanji in the restoration of cultural heritage. Through comparison with Chinese Xuan paper and Japanese Washi paper, the NRICH plans to scientifically display the originality of Hanji.
