2017 Jeonju Hanji Festival~ It starts tomorrow!

I am excited to announce that HanjiNaty will once more participate in the Hanji festival in Jeonju, in the province of Jeollabuk-do, South Korea!

The 2017 edition of the festival will be held from May 19 (Fri) to May 21 (Sun), in two locations, downtown Jeonju. The core of the festival will once again happen in the site adjacent to the Korean Cultural Center in Jeonju, but a satellite location in the Hanok village will allow more visitors to enjoy what the festival has to offer.

New! 2 locations for the festival!

An exciting change will make the 2017 edition especially interesting! The festival will be held in two different locations: most of the activities will be held on the festival site (close the the Cultural Center) and a satellite market will be installed in the heart of the Hanok village, Jeonju's most popular neighborhood!

The Hanji open market and the hands-on zone will be duplicated to accommodate more visitors. Paper and culture enthusiasts will have a chance to get to make interesting discoveries in both places, either by creating Hanji items themselves or by choosing to buy handcrafted items, unique gifts, or sumptuous high-quality Hanji paper.

A variety of events and activities to enjoy

Once again the festival visitors will have a chance to enjoy an interesting variety of cultural events and activities on the festival site. Different performances will be given on the main stages, including the famous and popular Hanji fashion show.

Visitors will also have a chance to visit the cultural garden, admire the Hanji sculptures and lanterns installed on site, including a giant Hanji paper tree that was recently erected.



HanjiNaty will be there!


HanjiNaty will be in both locations for the long weekend of the Festival. Come to say hello and take a look at our selection of handcrafted jewelry (earrings, necklaces, brooches), hair accessories (hair pins, ties and headbands), and decor items, such as coasters, plates, cabinets, boxes and pen holders.

The first HanjiNaty booth will be located on the edge of the festival site:



The second HanjiNaty booth will be located in the parking lot of the Gyeonggijeon Shrine (경기전):



We can't wait to see you there!

Hanji crafts for kitties

As a self-declared (and rather proud!) "crazy cat lady", I am thrilled and delighted to support, in my own creative way, The Cat House on the Kings, which is California's largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center.

For their Spring Open house, held on May 6, 2017, a silent auction is organized to raise funds for the cats and kitties sheltered, rescued and nursed by the CHOTK devoted team.


I am excited to announce that I have crafted a few cat-inspired pieces of jewelry that will be available for purchase at the silent auction!


I have made two pairs of earrings and one pendant that will be up for grabs at the silent auction on May 6, 2017. Hopefully they will pleased the cat enthusiasts who will visit the Cat House in Parlier, California for their Spring Open house event.

In addition to the silent auction, visitors will have a chance to tour the facilities and meet the amazing furry inhabitants of the Cat House. A raffle with beautiful prizes is also organized to raise funds.




I really hope that this small gesture will contribute to the success of the Spring Open House, and more importantly, to the continuous care given to all those beautiful felines.
