Pyongyang, November 21 (KCNA) -- From olden times, the Korean people have produced various kinds of silk and ramie fabrics embroidered with beautiful patterns.

Those fabrics were well known to neighboring countries in the period of the Three Kingdoms (early 3rd century B.C.-middle 7th century A.D.)

The variety of embroidery was further diversified in the period of the feudal Joson dynasty (1392-1910), following Koryo Kingdom. Appearing in those days were full dress, wedding clothes, sidepiece of a pillow, large wrapper for quilts and others embroidered with pictures of animals, plants and natural scenes.

Embroideries artistically show the noble character of the Korean women who are wise, intelligent and gentle outwardly but sturdy in spirit. They are high in artistic depiction and diverse in techniques.

Today the traditional embroidery of the Korean people has further developed in keeping with the socialist way of life and the national aesthetic taste, winning popularity worldwide.

Typical embroidery works are "Tiger", "Wild Geese in Moonlight” and "Autumn-tinted Mt Chilbo".

The traditional embroidery was registered as a national intangible cultural heritage in Juche 104 (2015). -0-
