Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is silk fabric that is traditionally dyed with 13 colors including ivory, red, pink, dark blue, medium blue, light blue, yellow, white, green, etc. It was rolled up like a scroll to be preserved. Some parts of the fabric have a trace of hand-washing after needlework plucking. It was smoothed by beating on a fulling block. This is an object worth preserving because of its beautiful color and rarity of dye goods used..

History of the Object
This fabric is made by an Andong noble family as bridal home furnishing.
