Why this is a
Masterpiece

Embroidery was a comforting handiwork, which traditional Korean women enjoyed daily. We are drawn to this beautiful artifact which expresses an unpretentious way of living. This pin cushion is decorated with beautiful and splendid colors. One side is embroidered with an elaborate floral pattern and the other side with geometric forms.

History of the Object
A baneulkkoji or baneulbangsuk is a pin cushion. It is made by mounting many layers of paper into a mould and filling it with cotton and hair one centimeter thick and then covering it with colored silk. Women made pin cushions to bring with them for their wedding so as to show one's skill and ability. Pin cushions come in various forms and sizes.
