This Wonsam dress is composed with primary colors, but each color harmonizes well with others streaming smoothly, since they were dyed through natural methods. Also, this Wonsam is exquisite in its transparent tissues and finely woven patterns.

History of the Object
This is Wonsam, which was on display at Myeong-sung Gallery covering Korean traditional arts. Thin silk threads and its naturally dyed colors produce beautiful patterns and even forms a certain harmony. Diverse colors in the stripes of the colorful sleeves go well with the gown's base color.
