Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is an item that represents the daily lives of the Korean people.

History of the Object
Thinly striped bamboo and horsehair were used to make the brim and hat body and hemp cloth was applied around the body, with the cloth painted in black. Depending on the materials used, the heungnip can be called by a different name. For instance, a hat made of horsehair was called mamirip and one made of pig hair jeomorip. The brim of this piece is of wide design and the hat itself is high. This style of hat suggests the trend of hats at that time. Evidently, the heungnip style changed from time to time. In the late Joseon period, narrow brims and hats of low height were in fashion.
