I’ve had many Korean customers tell me about weaving in Korea, but one of my favorite moments was the day a Korean man and woman come in the door and then came up to the loom with great excitement. The man declared that this was just like his mother’s weaving in Korea, he recognized the sound right away. His sister came next and with tears told me she has been writing her poetry for years to the remembered rhythm of her mother’s loom. This was the first time in many years she had heard the cadence aloud.
Fabrics in Korea are traditionally cotton, silk, ramie and hemp.
