Korean paper (or hanji) is the name of traditional handmade paper from Korea. Hanji is made from the inner bark of Paper Mulberry, a tree native to Korea that grows on its rocky mountainsides. The formation aid crucial to making hanji is the mucilage that oozes from the roots of Hibiscus Manihot. This substance helps suspend the individual fibres in water.
