Korea attaches great importance to its traditional culture and it has carried out a lot of conservation work in this regard. The exhibits are Korean costumes and textiles researched and copied in a historical context by teachers and students majoring in traditional fiber from Korea National University of Cultural Heritage. Among them, “traditional costumes” display the Korean traditional clothing from the 14th century to the 20th century; “traditional textiles” showcase all kinds of Korean textiles, including the ramie fabrics which adopt Korean National Intangible Heritage weaving skills, the restored traditional textiles which are deemed missing and other kinds of fabrics made by modern weaving machines.

By presenting traditional Korean costumes, fabrics and the weaving and dyeing techniques used in the costume making process, the exhibition aims at enhancing the Chinese audience’s understanding of Korean traditional costume culture and offering an opportunity for exchanges between China and Korea in the fields of inheritance, restoration and flexible application of this intangible cultural heritage.

Organizers: China National Silk Museum, Korea National University of Cultural Heritage.
