Paper to make your work look awesome + last a long time.
This is a special edition Hanji book made for CW&T by Korean Designers Hanaduri. Hanji is a traditional Korean paper made primarily from the inner bark of the mulberry tree and the sunset hibiscus. Its cross directional fibers and neutral PH give it lasting tensile strength and durability. This paper is soft, strong, environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
A delightful writing surface.
Hanji provides a smooth, slightly textured organic writing surface, with visible silky strands flecked across the pages. Hanji supports a variety of media. Our favorite is ink. But it is amazing with pencil, crayon or paint. Fittingly, Hanji doesn’t take too well to industrial printing processes, but loves anything done by hand.
Binding that is both durable + ergonomic
Hanji book is bound in Korea by a small, husband + wife team bindery. It is stitched together with perfect, layflat binding and an open spine. Regardless of the page you are on, this book lays naturally flat. And the open-bound exposed, glued spine makes visible its quality traditional construction.
Similar to our other products, there is no visible branding on Hanji book aside from a subtle Hanaduri emboss of the back cover. The front cover features a hand screen-printed bright orange dot to designate orientation.
A blank slate
There is no printing, lines, dots, grids, page numbers, or markings to tell you where to write your info in case you lose your sketchbook. Hanji book - CW&T Edition is designed to support YOU and YOUR creative practice. All the pages are blank for you to do what you want.
Lovely paper, easy to find amongst desk denizens thanks to the orange dot, no needless covering, frills, foldery bits or fussy faux-leather nonsense. Pricey? Not for this quality. Never realised how well a notebook could notebook until this notebook. Hard to sully with the scribblings of a mere mortal, but you do get used to it after a few pages. Noteworthy.
Love it so far.
I don’t know anything about “paper” but this is the second time I’ve gifted this to an artist and both times were a big hit!
Love the clean and distinct design. The size is great for keeping it with you. Binding and paper is quality.
I discovered CW&T a few months back, and had to wait for the Hanji book to be back in stock. After using two other products they make, and after seeing the quality of each product and seeing the amount of care they put into their products and customer relations, I knew I had to buy at least a few once they restocked. I'm only one day into using them, but I can already tell that it's the best journal / notebook I've ever had.
