I discovered Korean hanji paper in Jeonju, South Korea during my two years living in Sunchang. They have a Hanji Festival every summer: http://english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/SI/SI_EN_3_2_1.jsp?cid=293037 It’s beautiful, quality handmade paper and can be found in trillions of amazing colours, patterns, sizes and weights. I love it! It’s been a great inspiration for patterns, I love the textures it can add to a surface and I can’t wait to use it in my mixed media work. I went to the shop in the photos below and spent a little too much money buying tons of it to send home, you can see why I couldn’t help myself!

There’s some history and extra info here and an interesting video of the traditional making process and methods here.
