Korean Embroidery ~ A Master of Tradition


On display at the Global Village Museum is the elaborate artwork and handicraft of Jungji Doh, “I love embroidery because it is closely integrated with our daily life and culture,” said Doh.  “Hundreds of years ago, Korean embroidery involved a labor-intensive process of reeling, dyeing, and weaving silk threads into fabric and designing patterns.  It was considered an important skill for Korean ladies.  Women often used symbols and patterns that signified luck, success, and well-being for their family.”
