Samwha Paper breathes new life to paper

잠들어 있는 종이에 색을 입히는 기업, 삼화제지

In paper, we believe there is a nostalgic longing for a place,
a link between yesterday and tomorrow, and a touch of glitter that makes you shine.
We make paper to add a little more personal touch
to our interactions and a lot of warmth to our lives.
