Jisung Craft is also known as Nojikkae, which is made by twisting paper into a container. Although the exact date of the outbreak is unknown, it is estimated that there were many paper bowls during the Joseon Dynasty, which had been handed down since then.

Cut Korean paper and soak it in water to make it. Fold the twisted paper string in half and weave it one by one. A pattern or shape can be freely changed and a pattern is applied to a paper bowl with a form. Finally, it is finished by polishing with cashew, a kind of paint. They make baskets, trays, suspenders, shoes (meturi) with paper straps.

Jiseungjo was designated as an intangible cultural asset in order to transfer and protect technology as a traditional craftsmanship. It has been cut off for some time by Choi Young-joon, a functional holder living in Hongseong-gun, Chungcheongnam-do.
