Korean Paper Making

Writers are nothing if not fact junkies and lovers of obscure bits of knowledge.  And this tidbit combines two of my passions — trivia and paper art.

Here is a little something to add to your paper lore — Korean paper is made from the mulberry plant.  It has the smoothest surface of all handmade paper and is thus an excellent medium for calligraphy and painting.  Cool!

Check out Aimee Lee’s video of  paper making at a family owned Korean paper mill.

Special thanks to All Things Paper for bringing this awesome bit of reality to my attention.
