Since the 1960s, traditional textile and craft production in South Korea have been eroded by industrialisation, so the revival of craft is central to Sun Lee’s practice.

The garments shown here are made of hanji paper, a material renowned for its durability and often used for traditional home interiors across Asia. Cut, torn and rolled by hand, the paper becomes the basis for Lee’s layerable, modular garments whose ephemeral and disposable nature reflects her commitment to sustainability.
