About Hanji Naty

Natalie, the gal behind Hanji Naty

After living in South Korea for a few years, I finally had a chance in 2010 to learn the finesses of Hanji, sumptuous Korean paper made of mulberry pulp.

After learning the basics and techniques of traditional Hanji (cutting, gluing, etc.), it didn't take long before I started to experiment and interpret freely the traditional Korean patterns and usual color combinations. No need to say that my choice of bold colors and unconventional use of patterns made my Korean Hanji teacher raise her eyebrows!

But, that's where the magic occurs:  creating unique pieces that are at the crossroads between traditional Korean crafts and Western modern style.

Hanji has traditionally been used to create decorative or ceremonial objects. For HanjiNaty, it is essential to offer useful and practical objects, that can enjoyed on a daily basis. Tissue cases, pen holders, piggy banks, fridge magnets: let the beauty and unique character of Hanji make our everyday life objects irresistible!
