A tiny one-room museum with examples of a neglected and unheralded craft and embroidery books to browse. In the good old days, nearly every­thing in Korea was embroidered – clothes, shoes, boxes, pillow-ends, screens, pin cushions, toys and thimbles. Delicate patchwork pojagi (wrapping cloths) had many uses and some were made out of silk or ramie (cloth made from pounded bark).

From the subway exit, turn left and then take the second alley on the right.
