Wonju Hanji Master

I'm currently travelling during my summer break so forgive me for the lack of information coming through on this blog. 

I did find time today though to do some research and I came across this article about Jang Euong-ryeol a man who has inspired a Parisian to open a Hanji paper store on the Champs Elysee. 

Paris also held a Hanji paper festival here in March  as part of it's French / Korean focus on culture exhibition.  I wish I could have been here then.

Check out this interview with one of the Grand masters of Hanji making and read his story and he and his family's passion for Wonju hanji.
