Museum of Korean Embroidery information
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).
