Traditional Korean Clothes;Hanbok



Korean people made warm clothes using the technique of filling cotton between two layers of material which can be silk or cotton fabric and sew them together. And They used sambe(hemp) or mosi(ramie) as material to make summer clothes. Korean traditional clothes are called hanbok.


In the past, Korean people often preferred simple white clothing. That is why they are known as peaceful people and called “white-clad people” among their neighbors.


Korea also had a long tradition of enjoying colorful clothes with complex designs depending on the events and period. Today, Korea is home to many talented fashion designers who have an international reputation. 
But still, traditional clothing which is called hanbok still in used for many occasions like weddings, and other special events. With the Korean films and Tv dramas getting famous in the world, the number of foreigners who want to wear hanbok has risen. There are places you can rent hanbok for few hours. One of that place like that is called Hanboknam.
There are traditional and modern hanboks you can rent there. And you can take a Seoul tour in your hanbok or you can take a photo with it.
