GugimFoilo

GugimFolio takes its name from the process of making a wrinkled Hanji paper, where the mulberry inner bark is made into paper, then crumpled and flattened repeatedly by artisans with hearts & hands.

Notebook & Organizer
made with wrinkled Hanji paper

Stronger than strong

GugimFolio is a Hanji notebook organizer made with wrinkled paper called Gugim Hanji produced by artisans in Jeonju, located in western South Korea. Leather-like Gugim Hanji, which is even more durable than original Hanji, strengthens the GugimFoilo cover without laminating paper. Each folio cover is meticulously handcrafted and hand-painted with the spirit of art at HANADURI studio.

The GugimFolio consists of a replaceable notebook and has a tuck spot for tickets, memos, and stickers. Although GugimFolio is defined as a notebook, it’s actually a creative space for writing, drawing, painting and more.

Artisan’s Paper

Since 1975

Gugim is a Korean traditional technique of crumpling paper by hand using two layers of damp Hanji. Developed to make paper much stronger and more flexible than ordinary Hanji, Gugim technique creates a unique texture and depth of the paper.

Since 1975, a Korean couple craftsmen who honed their papermaking skills have been passing on the tradition by making Gugim Hanji for over 20 years.

구김은 축축한 한지 두겹을 사용하여 손으로 직접 종이를 구기는 한국 전통 기술입니다. 일반 한지보다 훨씬 더 강하고 유연한 종이를 만들기 위해 개발된 구김기법은 종이의 독특한 질감과 깊이를 만듭니다.

1975년부터 제지 기술을 연마해온 부부 한지 장인이 20년이 넘도록 구김한지를 만들며 전통을 계승해오고 있습니다.

All folio covers are painted by hand, making each one truly unique.
