Korea House & Namsan Hanok Folk Village, Seoul: 59 reviews and 119 photos
<BR><b>Silk & cotton weaving</b> can both be observed here. Hand-woven silk is now rated as precious cloth like hemp & ramie cloth. Silk dates back to the Samban period, like hemp cloth. Silk is produced by farm families as a sideline as in the past through all its process, from silkworm raising to weaving.
<BR>Cotton was first introduced to Korea from China in the 14th century & since became the most widely used material for clothes. To make cotton cloth, the cotton was first ginned & then yarn spun from the ginned cotton. The yarn was then fed into a loom for weaving. The finer the mesh of the woven cloth, the better the quality of the material.
