The process of cording and weaving hanji (Korean handmade paper) by a master weaver, Na Seo Hwan. He is a 3rd-generation master who developed a more effective and efficient way of cording paper, different from how most paper weavers work. This ancient paper craft, known formally as noyeokgae, still exists in Korea today but the intense labor, time, and strength required for it means that very few masters remain, and even fewer serious disciples.

Special thanks to my teacher, Na Seo Hwan.
Thanks to the U.S. Fulbright program for the time and funding to make this research possible.
