Hanji Paper : traditional, sustainable, and reusable Hanji is a traditional Korean high-quality mulberry paper. Hanji is also for the modern world: an eco-friendly, harvested material. Trees aren’t cut down. The paper is made from the branches of one-year-old mulberry trees, which grow back. The Hanji trays are varnished with a natural shellac which makes them water-resistant. They can be washed by gently applying running water, or wiped with a wet towel, then dried with a towel and reused.
Food Safe The shellac finish is a natural resin secreted by the female lac bug on trees in the forests of India and Thailand. It’s well-known as a non-toxic food safe material. The shellac is vulnerable to heat and so your tray is recommended for use with cold and dry items or foods.
