Choson Kingdom uniform patches on CD

Posted December. 27, 2000 11:32,   


This is an embroidered patch on the breast and back of an official uniform of king and court officials of the Choson Kingdom (1392-1910). The patches are a precious cultural heritage, showing the way of thinking of people in the governing class and the seasoned embroidery of that time. Materials and a CD-ROM about the patches recently were released by the National Folk Museum.
