Document’s Hanji Paper Cardigan Is Partially Made From Paper

If you had to double-take at the title of the piece then I’m sure you won’t be alone. I also had to take a sip of water and rub my eyes slightly to make sure I hadn’t misread. Korean imprint Document has taken fabrication to a place I’ve not yet seen with their Hanji Paper Relaxed Cardigan. Hanji refers to a traditional Korean paper derived from mulberry bark historically used in many other ways such as insulation and the more commonly — stationery. Document has taken 56% of this to be exact and blended it with 46% nylon to create a fabric with a loose-knit, cool dry feel and incredible aesthetic.

Handmade in Korea, the relaxed look and fit of this piece is accentuated by the drop shoulders, two large front pockets on either side of the hip, and almost completely tonal wooden buttons. Despite having a completely unique and interesting fabric, the real standout for me is that curved, almost pinned-up front hem which really elevates the silhouette.

Available from Namu Shop priced at $335
