Why this is a
Masterpiece

Among Whal-ots, this one has a distinctive feature of silk embroidered on naturally dyed grayish green background color. The beauty of this cloth lies especially in the stripes of diverse colors on the sleeves (cuffs). They harmonize gracefully with each other. While naturally-dyed clothing have rarely survived, this whal-ot is high in value as it is fully and well preserved.

History of the Object
This is a natural-dye wedding dress once worn and kept by a noble family in Andong.
