From what I understand, gampi, hanji, and unryu are made from different plants. They're pretty similar in folding quality though.
Anyway, I'm probably gonna use the hanji.

Unryu is made in Thailand, and the color is uniform.
Hanji has different colored fibers.
They're both nice imo.

There is a problem with hanji, though...
If it's not treated, it will fray a lot.
Unryu has loose fibers, but doesn't fray nearly as much as hanji.
(At least with the hanji I use).
